Two of the accused, Shareef and Yousuf worked as welders. After joining hands with Mohd Hussain, they started collecting and transporting PDS rice. The accused started collecting PDS rice from known and unknown cardholders for Rs 8 and stored them in their godown.
They later secretly transported the same PDS rice to Jeedimetla in small quantities with help of small goods vehicles and sold them to two other accused — Syed Akram and Shaik Wajeed— who were Hussain’s partners, for Rs 12/kg.
