Officers of the city narcotics cell, on Saturday, arrested a major ganja supplier with 2kg of the drug after a joint operation with Poojappura police. The police identified the accused as Anilkumar (42) a resident of Rajaji Nagar Colony.
According to the police, Anilkumar was a habitual offender, who was sentenced by court after being arrested for the same offence in 2004. More recently, he was arrested in 2015.
