The police also seized 40 pots of weed and 8.6 kilogrammes of ganja, from Syed Shahed Hussain's residence in Manikonda area in Hyderabad. The 33-year-old former bank employee was caught when he was selling ganja to a customer at Telangana's Golconda, the report added.

According to a News18 report, Hussain learnt to grow ganja indoors through internet videos after being advised to do so by his American friend Christopher.

What makes this raid interesting is the fact that Hussain's three-BHK falt had all the facilities to allow cannabis to grow indoors, including LED lights to ensure artificial light, table fan for regulating air flow and chemicals like phosphorous, potassium, cocofibre pith, flora pellet, aquasol, aquadene and cay stones to help achieve better quality of the banned substance, various reports noted.
