"After getting the company registered under the name Babu Tex, marijuana was being supplied to different parts of the country through the company," said the SP.

In this case, arrests have also been made in Visakhapatnam in addition to Bhind and Gwalior, added the SP.

"Buyers are the same who purchased from Babu Tex," he added.

"A police team was sent to Vizag to collect information. FIR has been lodged there."
