Indian Police Lay Trap For 2 Kenyan Women Moving Cocaine

Indian police officers on Wednesday lured and nabbed two Kenyan females moving cocaine worth Ksh25 million.

India's Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) tracked one of the ladies at Delhi Indira Gandhi International (IGI) where she was in possession of 1.698 kilograms of cocaine.

According to Indian authorities, the lady had flown from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) Nairobi with the drugs. It is still not clear how they evaded JKIA security with the drugs. 

Indian detectives noted that the lady denied having any contraband, but after a search, the drugs were found in her luggage. 

The lady was about to board another plane to Mumbai where according to the police she was to sell the drugs.  

The plane ticket turned out to be helpful to DRI as it enabled them to piece the puzzles together and know the would-be buyer who was waiting in Mumbai.

After arresting the first Kenyan woman, the officers laid a trap for the buyer in Mumbai who showed up for the transaction.

It turned out that the buyer was also a Kenyan woman living in Mumbai with a connection to an Asian drug ring. 

"Both the carrier and the recipient have been placed under arrest in accordance with the provisions of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act," a statement from the police read in part.
