Inquiries revealed that Panna Singh was working at the club for close to a decade, but as his earnings were not sufficient he began smuggling ganja from Vizag. Police found that he is a habituated ganja peddler and with the greed to earn easy money, he started procuring ganja from Nagamani. Usually, Panna Singh contacts Nagamani. She delivers ganja to his home, in Chaderghat in the city, for Rs 3,000 per kg. He then packs it in small packets of around 25 grams each and sells them for about Rs 150 each to known customers in Malakpet and the surrounding areas.
