Mangaluru: The CCB Police have apprehended two individuals involved in the illicit sale of synthetic drug MDMA. The suspects, Shakib Yane Shabbu (33) from Surathkal Katipalla 2nd Block and Nissar Hussein Yane Nichu (34) from Chokkabettu 8th Block, were found in possession of 52 grams of MDMA, valued at approximately 2,60,000 INR. Alongside the drugs, authorities also seized a car, two mobile phones, 1,800 INR in cash, and digital weighing scales, with an estimated total worth of 7,83,300 INR.
The Anti-Rowdy Squad of Mangaluru CCB Police, led by Inspector P. A. Hegde, conducted a well-informed raid near Surathkal Tadbail Beach Road, targeting these individuals engaged in illegal drug trade. Shakib, one of the suspects, had a history of involvement in multiple criminal cases, including three theft cases in Surathkal Police Station, an attempted murder, a stabbing, a robbery in Bajpe Police Station, a vehicle theft in Bantwala, a murder attempt in Barkur Police Station, and robbery cases in Moodubidire, Karikal, and Karikal Gramantara Police Stations, totaling 13 cases against him.
Despite being granted bail by the court, Shakib failed to appear for his hearings, resulting in the issuance of multiple warrants against him. Nissar Hussein Nichu, the other suspect, also had a criminal record, including theft cases, attempted murder, and drug peddling in Barkur Police Station, as well as robbery and attempted murder cases in Surathkal Police Station. He was involved in thefts in Mulki Police Station, Uppinangady, Sakaleshapura Police Stations, and vehicle-related thefts in Heddarige, Kadri, Uppinangady, and Sakaleshapura Police Station areas. Nissar was also linked to three theft cases in Pandeshwar Police Station and a total of nine attempted murder cases.
Even after being granted bail in these cases, Nissar continued to avoid appearing in court, resulting in the issuance of seven warrants against him as he went into hiding. Recently, he was implicated in an incident involving an attempted murder during a cricket match brawl in Vitla Police Station’s jurisdiction, and authorities reported that he absconded in this case as well.
The case against these accused individuals has been documented at Surathkal Police Station, and the investigation is being carried out by the CCB team, led by Inspector Shyam Sundar H.M., along with SI Rajendra B., Sharanappa Bhandardi, Sudip M.V., Narendra, and other CCB officers.
