Narcotics control bureau nabs ‘cough syrup dealer’ from Delhi airport

The Narcotics control bureau (NCB) on Sunday arrested a resident of Uttar Pradesh from New Delhi airport for his alleged involvement in smuggling of cough syrups to Bangladesh.

Sources said Apurba Mandal, a resident of Baishnabnagar in Malda, was intercepted by the BSF in May last year by for smuggling cough syrup to the neighbouring country.

“Later, the case was later handed over to the NCB. As NCB officers interrogated Mandal, they came to know about Vibhor Rana, who hails from Saharanpur district of Uttar Pradesh. The pharma company where Rana was working as a distributor manufactures the cough syrups which were seized by the BSF last year. In due course, the NCB summoned Rana a number of times for interrogation but he didn’t turn up,” said a source.

“This left the NCB sleuths suspecting that Rana might escape from India and they issued a lookout notice against him. On Sunday, Rana was picked up from the Indira Gandhi international airport in New Delhi,” the source added.

On Monday, Rana was brought in Malda on transit remand here and produced in a court. He was sent to NCB’s custody for nine days.
