Mumbai: A 47-year-old businessman allegedly bought Mephedrone (MD), a stimulant drug, worth 4.60 crore to implicate his maternal cousin by putting the substance in his vehicle through one of his relatives.

He also lives in Mumbai but is currently in his native place at Latur and will reach the city on Monday,” said police inspector Ghanshyam Nair of unit 5. We have been trying to find out how Kharatmol got MD and who the supplier is, added Nair.

According to the police, Kharatmol was staying in Rajiv Gandhi society at Dhorwada area, Dharavi from his childhood before shifting to a rented house in Bandra. His father, Sambhaji used to run a workshop where they made raincoats but he shifted to Chennai a few years ago.
