Bengaluru: Five people were arrested on charges of possessing synthetic drugs worth Rs 30 lakh here, police said on Thursday June 10.

The accused five were part of a gang whose members were arrested on April 29 at Kadugodi in the city.

“This gang obtains information about the required drugs through the Tar Browser of Dark Web and Dread Website and acquires the goods from a local vendor through Wickr-Me mobile application.

The payment was done using Bitcoin,” the police said.

They sell it to the wealthy, primarily those in the IT and telecommunications industries, for Rs 4,000 to Rs 5,000 each Ecstasy tablet and Rs 5,000 per gramme of LSD, as demand for the drugs increased dramatically during the lockdown.

They were found in possession of 119 Ecstasy tablets, 150 LSD paper sheets, and six cellphones.
