Greater Noida: Three persons have been arrested by Gautam Buddh Nagar police for allegedly selling Narcotic capsules to under-trial prisoners who come for hearing at Surajpur court. Cops said that the arrested persons were in jail and knew that marijuana and other drugs were in high demands in the jail. According to police, the arrested persons have been identified as Parvez, a resident of Sarfabad village in Noida, Rahil from Dankaur area in Greater Noida and Santosh from Vijay Nagar area in Ghaziabad.

Kumar Ran Vijay Singh, Superintendent of Police (rural), Gautam Buddh Nagar said that marijuana and other drugs were packed in the shape of capsule and were supplied in jail. "Upon interrogating the accused persons, they told police that the drugs and marijuana were supplied in well packed plastic in a shape of capsule. The prisoners who had come to Surajpur court for hearing get the capsules and swallow them. Later they excrete in the prison and get them. Some take them for their personal use while some sell them to other prisoners at higher rates," said Singh.

"They also told police that they charge Rs 400-500 per capsule while the prisoners sell them for Rs 1000 per capsule in jail.
