Afghan carrying over 60 heroin capsules faints on flight

When Mohammadi Hamid fell unconscious just before his Kabul to New Delhi flight was about to land at the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA), the officials took it for a casual case of nausea often witnessed on flights, and rushed him to the Indian Spinal Injuries Centre in Vasant Kunj. To their surprise, the 19-year-old was immediately referred to the Safdarjung Hospital, where as many as seven capsules of heroin were recovered from his rectum.

The Afghan national had arrived at the IGIA from Kabul by Air India flight AI 244 on Saturday. Police have confirmed that Hamid was a carrier of drugs and as many as 60 capsules, which he had swallowed, are yet to be retrieved from his body. He is still unconscious and is admitted in the ICU of Safdarjung Hospital.
