The proceedings have been videographed and some among those questioned have given consent for taking samples of their body fluids, hair and nails while others refused, an SIT official said. Expensive drugs like lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) and methylenedioxy-methamphetamine (MDMA) were reportedly supplied. Orders were placed by the racketeers through "Darknet" and the drugs were delivered by couriers including from overseas, the officials had said.
