HYDERABAD: Continuing their effort to smoke out people involved in drug trade, prohibition and excise sleuths arrested a former NASA scientist and his aide for peddling narcotics on Wednesday.

Excise personnel arrested Anish Dundoo, 29, and his friend Ritul Agarwal, 26. After analysing the call details and cell phone data records of the 10 peddlers arrested in the past few weeks, the Special Task Force (STF) of the excise department had zeroed in on the duo. Several arrested culprits had also confirmed about the peddling activity of Anish and Ritul during interrogation.
STF sleuths picked up Anish from his office near Paradise in Secunderabad and, based on the information provided by him, Ritul was picked up later at Nampally.

STF sleuths seized 16 LSD blots from Anish and 1.2-kilo cannabis from Ritul.

During the preliminary probe, STF sleuths came to know that Anish is an alumnus of the prestigious Doon School in Dehradun. After schooling, he pursued bachelor’s degree in aerospace, aeronautical and astronautical engineering from University of Cincinnati, US.
