The Rajampeta police today arrested eight persons for possession and distribution of heroin.
The police refused to divulge details not even confirming the arrests, it is reliably known from highly placed sources that the whole issue would be brought before the press sometime on Monday.
Sources said that two persons had escaped during the raids conducted in a few areas of Rajampeta which has a lot of families whose members have primarily relocated to the Gulf countries. It is learnt that investigation is on whether heroin is only being sold in Rajampeta or being sent abroad using Gulf settlers as conduits.
