Tanzanian held at Delhi airport with drugs worth Rs 35 lakh

New Delhi: A 33-year-old Tanzanian man has been apprehended by CISF personnel at the Delhi airport for allegedly trying to smuggle out narcotic drug worth about Rs 35 lakh, officials said Thursday.

K Kelvin George was intercepted by the security officials late on Wednesday after he arrived at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport to take a flight to a city in Tanzania via Doha, they said.

George (33) was chosen for detailed frisking as he was found suspicious and subsequently 25 kgs of white granular powder, stuffed in five transparent packets labelled 'superfine quality' sugar, was recovered from his travel bag.

CISF personnel subsequently called anti-narcotics sleuths who confirmed the granular substance to be pseudoephedrine, a stimulant type of narcotic drugs.
