NCB Seizes Rs 350-Crore Heroin with Rs 30 Lakh Cash in Jamia Nagar of Delhi


NEW DELHI : The NCB confiscated around 50 kilograms of “high-quality” heroin and detained a man during searches in Delhi’s Jamia Nagar neighborhood on Thursday, the federal anti-narcotics agency claimed, claiming to have disrupted an Indo-Afghan drug smuggling ring.

Sanjay Kumar Singh, Deputy Director General (operations) of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), stated at a press briefing that cash worth Rs. 30 lakh was also recovered during Wednesday’s operation at residential premises in south Delhi.

The officer stated that the narcotics were concealed in backpacks and jute bags and were wrapped in packets from e-commerce giant Flipkart and other firms.

He stated that this was one of the largest drug recoveries in recent memory in Delhi and that too from a residential location. An additional 47 kg of “suspected” drugs were recovered from the premises, Mr. Singh added, and the NCB forwarded them to a laboratory for examination.

“The incident is believed to be connected to an Indo-Afghan network based in Delhi, the National Capital Region, and nearby states. These gangs are skilled at producing and adulterating heroin on a local level “he said.

According to a senior official, the syndicate’s “kingpin” is located in Dubai, and the agency is continuing to investigate the matter.

The apprehended individual, an Indian national, does not reside in the searched flat at Shaheen Bagh and had rented it, according to the officer, who requested anonymity. The NCB stated that India-Afghanistan syndicates transport products to India using marine and land-border routes, and heroin is carried with genuine goods and cargo.

The Indian members of these syndicates then extract heroin from these commodities with the assistance of certain Afghan nationals, it stated. The agency is conducting searches to disrupt the whole network, which it alleged is tied to operations in Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and Delhi.
