Preliminary investigation revealed the accused duo was hired by a main drug peddler settled in New Delhi.
The peddler used to pay Rs 50,000 each per month to the duo, who had to collect narcotics from mules or postal/ courier services and send them to his customers using delivery and courier firms.
The accused hid the drugs in soap boxes, photos frames, greeting cards and books. Later, they packed them in boxes to make them look like gifts and sent them to customers in Bengaluru.
