Indonesian authorities arrest 2 Indian nationals for smuggling meth to Bali

Officers from the Denpasar Police arrested two Indian nationals at a hotel in South Kuta earlier this week, allegedly seizing around 3 kg of shabu (crystal methamphetamine) from the duo.

At a press conference yesterday, Denpasar Police Chief Commissioner Ruddi Setiawan said that the suspects – identified as Manjet Singh and Harvinder Singh – flew to Bali from Jakarta and hid the drugs in “special plastic” to fool airport authorities.

“The two suspects confessed that they acquired the drugs from someone in Jakarta and brought them to Bali by airplane,” Ruddi said, as quoted in a statement.

According to a report from Detik, Ruddi said he suspected that the two were part of an India-Bali narcotics trafficking network.

Police say that both Manjet and Harvinder confessed to this being their third time smuggling drugs to Bali and that they were paid around IDR 10 million (USD 706) each time, as reported by Merdeka.
