Tollywood producer in drug racket

Tollywood film producer KV Rao of “Dadar Express” fame and his associate were arrested by the Madhapur police of Cyberabad on Sunday in connection with a drugs racket being operated from Hyderabad.

Police sources said 20 kgs of Ephedrine, a chemical used in manufacture of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances, was seized from a four-wheeler hired by the film producer. They were looking out for customers to purchase it for a higher rate.

The regulated price of Ephedrine in the country is around Rs. 1,200 per kg, but it can fetch a fortune in the international market.

This chemical is used as a major component in preparing banned drugs like Ecstasy and Ice that are consumed in rave parties worldwide.
