Rs 1.25 crore worth of banned drug seized at KIA

An officer said they searched export cargos at the Air Cargo Complex following a tip-off and found around Rs 25 kg of Ephedrine concealed in the inlay covers of folding files in six carbon boxes.

The haul is valued at Rs 1.25 crore. The drug is banned under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act.

Customs officers checked the details of the consignment, which led them to two local residents. The officer refused to disclose the identify of the suspects, saying they do not intend to alert other people possibly involved in the racket.

The seized drug is suspected to have been sourced from Karnataka and other parts of India, the officer added.

The drug was concealed in the folder files so as to evade detection. Customs officials have alerted their counterparts in Malaysia and given them the address where the consignment was meant to be delivered, another officer said.
