The Karnataka Police recently found a marijuana farm spread over 4 acres in Chitradurga district's Rampura.
The cultivation was unearthed 2 weeks ago and the authorities seized 9,872 kilograms of marijuana worth ₹4.2 crore.
After Kannada actor Ragini Dwivedi's arrest in connection with a drug abuse case in Bengaluru on 4th September, locals informed the Rampura Police about cannabis plants being cultivated in a large area.
Talking to TNM, the Rampura Police said:
The locals were watching the news about drugs and realised that the crops growing in that plot was the ganja plant.
The Police have arrested 3 persons in connection with the case and are yet to nab the prime suspect Rudresh, who was cultivating cannabis plants.
