During the investigation, cops learned that Qader owns Al-Nahdi Fitness Club in Chandrayangutta and has been running the fitness place for the past year. Speaking about the arrest, SOT DCP MA Rasheed said, "As his earnings through the gym were not sufficient due to lack of customers, he came up with a plan to sell banned stamina-booster injections to attract customers."

The DCP further said that Qader reportedly purchased the injections, tablets and steroids from Ibrahim. The accused bought each injection vial for Rs 300 and sold it to his clients for Rs 1,400. After his arrest, Qader confessed to his crime and told cops about the drugs at his gym.
