The Visakhapatnam police on Tuesday arrested four persons and recovered 200 kg ganja worth over Rs 12 lakh from them.

Police also seized a Tavera car which they used for transporting the weed to Hyderabad.

The accused are identified as T Bharat (22), S Demullu (23), S Samudram (22) and A Srinu. However, the suspected kingpin, Pravin is absconding.

City Task Force Inspector Mallikarjuna Rao said that Praveen and Bharat had worked together for an event management company in Hyderabad earlier.

The CTF team caught them near Pinagadi junction under Pendurthy police station limits.

"The smugglers procured one kg of ganja for Rs 3,000 and will sell it for Rs 6,000 in Hyderabad. They were planning to sell the stuff in Nagpur at double price," Rao said.

A case has been registered and investigation is on.
