The Times of India reported that the arrested persons have been identified as N Aakash Singh, (22), a cricket coach, B Tarun Das, (22), Saket Jaiswal, (26), and Sanjay Kumar Jhanki Das, (53), a businessman from Goa.
The TOI report adds that Saket, a native of Nepal, had finished his engineering in NIT, Warangal, and used to frequent Goa, where he came in touch with Sanjay.
Police said that Sanjay was a drug dealer, who sold LSD and Cocaine, and Sanjay began purchasing it from him, even after completing his engineering, and shifting to Hyderabad.
It was here, that Saket met Tarun and Akash through a common friend.
"They started selling LSD drugs in Hyderabad for higher prices. They procured it for Rs 500 from Goa and sold them for about Rs 1,500 to Rs 2,000 to students and other customers here," a senior Task Force official told Telangana Today.
The police said that Saket had asked Sanjay to procure cocaine and LSD stamps from Goa a few days ago, and bring them to Hyderabad.
The police first detained Aakash and Tarun, as they were trying to sell the drugs, and later picked up Sanjay and Saket from the latter's flat.
Police seized three grams of cocaine, 20 grams of charas and 22 blot papers of LSD from them.
They were later handed over to the Chikkadpally police for further investigation.
