Kottayam: An assistant cameraman was nabbed by the special squad of the Kottayam excise department on Friday for allegedly possessing 225 grams of ganja. The accused has been identified as Suhail Sulaiman (28), a native of Mundakayam.

As per reports, the ganja was kept hidden in several packets of 50 grams each and were recovered from the bedroom of the accused’s house. A small electronic weighing machine used for weighing the ganja was also seized. It is learnt that the accused had charged Rs 2000 per packet.

“Suhail is a key link in the Mundakayam-based drug mafia. He has worked in films such as Neelavelicham, Chathuram and Higuita,” excise officials said.

The excise investigation was carried out on the basis of the information that Suhail was selling drugs to people, including college students. In addition, Erumeli native Aromal Saji, who purchased ganja from Suhail, has been named second accused in the case.

Reportedly, several people had dialled Suhail asking for ganja while he was under police custody.

The investigation was carried out by a team of excise officers including Kottayam excise special squad circle inspector Rajesh John, preventive officers Binod KR, Anilkumar and Naushad, civil excise officers Nimesh KS, Prashobh KV, Haritha Mohan and excise driver Anil KK.
