KOCHI: The excise arrested some supplying drugs to rave parties in Kochi under the code language of ‘Disco Biscuits’. They used to provide drugs at rave parties held in secret at private resorts and luxury hotels.

Salahuddin O M (Mafru) a native of Kakkanad, Ameer Abdul Khader of Trithala in Palakkad and Arfaz Sharif of Kottayam Vaikom are those arrested. They were caught in a joint operation by the commissioner's special action team, Ernakulam IB, Ernakulam Range Party and Angamaly Range Party.


7.5 grams of MDMA, a highly destructive yellow meth, was recovered from them. The excise took into custody Rs one lakh five thousand obtained by selling drugs and three smart phones from them. They used to hand over the drugs between customers under the code name ‘Disco Biscuits’.


Salahuddin alias Mafru, accused in several criminal cases was the main man to supply drugs to the parties. The group controlled by this mob controlled the entire supply of drugs at rave parties. It was because of them that the drug addicts came mainly from Bangalore and Mangalore for night parties.


There were clues about them from those caught earlier, but no one knew more details. The method of sale was to book a room online under different names, stay and deliver drugs at night.


Excise got more information about them after a youth who was their main intermediary was caught by the excise special action team. In an investigation conducted, they were caught with drugs by the excise team while they got off the train in Ernakulam.

IB inspector S Manoj Kumar, Ernakulam Range Inspector Girish Kumar, Angamaly inspector Sijo Varghese, IB preventive officer N G Ajithkumar, Shyam Mohan, Vipin Babu, civil excise officers N D Tommy, D J Biju, P Padmagirishan participated in the party.
