CISF arrests Tanzanian national for keeping 6kg Ephedrine at Mumbai International Airport

The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) officers on Thursday nabbed a Tanzanian national for allegedly carrying six kg of Ephedrine drugs. The arrest was made on Thursday late night when the officers found something suspicious during the screening of luggage at Terminal 2 of the Mumbai International Airport.

According to the customs officials, the accused identified as I A Shabani was travelling to Muscat from city airport on a flight scheduled for departure on Wednesday. As per security protocols, the surveillance team of the CISF picked up Shabani for random checking of his luggage. While doing so, Shabani was said to be reluctant and claimed that the bag does not belong to him. On noticing Shabani's unusual gestures, the CISF officers conducted a thorough check-up of his luggage and later retrieved the contraband item in the form of white crystals.
