DINDIGUL:  Five people were arrested on Monday for allegedly dealing in magic mushrooms in Kodaikanal as well as selling it in states like Kerala, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. Sources said that the dealers primarily target tourists in Kodaikanal.

Two other relatives of Salomon, also engaged in the illegal sale, are absconding, said the police. They seized 300 grams of magic mushrooms from Salomon’s house, along with cash which they said the accused people could have earned from the sale of the banned substance.

In a separate incident, the police arrested Thangadurai (32) and Suresh (56) near Pallangi, and seized 100 grams of magic mushrooms from them.
