Ahmedabad, Oct 24 (PTI) Two persons were arrested on Sunday in Ahmedabad in Gujarat allegedly with 250 grams of mephedrone drug worth Rs 25 lakh in the illicit market, police said.

"They took separate state transport buses to Ahmedabad to evade arrest. Qureshi is a history-sheeter who has spent five years in jail in a POTA case. Sheikh was arrested separately. Both have been charged under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act," he said.
