South African drug carrier was offered 1 lakh for job

Hyderabad:  South African drug peddler Mosiea Moosa was offered 20,000 rands (Rs 1 lakh approximately; 1 rand = Rs 4.90) by the Latin American drug cartel to carry 793 grams of cocaine worth over five crore rupees in her body across continents.

During interrogation by Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) sleuths, Mosiea reportedly confessed that the handler from Sao Paulo, whom she first met through social networking sites, offered to pay her 20,000 rands for each successful delivery of cocaine consignment from Sao Paulo to the destination in another continent.

Though Mosiea told the NCB officials that the handler in Sao Paulo was now her boyfriend, the investigators were a little suspicious about her claims as the members of drug cartels seldom give their original details to the carriers.

Mosiea came to India on a 10-day non-medical visiting visa. When the NCB officials intercepted her at the RGI Airport on August 30 morning, she claimed that she was seven-month pregnant. The sleuths felt something was fishy as a seven-month pregnant woman would not travel around the globe alone without any purpose (Johannesburg - Dubai - Sao Paulo - Dubai - Hyderabad - Dubai - Johannesburg in a span of 17 days).
