| Updated: September 22, 2021 17:49

Gujarat with 1600 km coastline – the largest coastline of India has paved way for overseas trade and commerce for years. However, it has now become a malicious transit point for India’s drug trading.

Recently, Gujarat ATS seized more than 30 kg of heroin in a 72-hour-long operation where seven Iranian nationals were detained. The drugs were found in the sea 185 nautical miles from Porbandar with the Iranian Pakistani drug mafia. The crew members carried the drugs from Afghanistan to Iran and then from Iran ports to Gujarat ports.

Indian Coast Guard (ICG), Marine Police, Gujarat Police along with Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) intercepted a ship at Mundra port in Kutch, which had two containers that had been ‘mis-declared as talcum powder’ but had been trying to smuggle heroin in the country from Afghanistan via Iran ports.

As per the officials, they were tipped off and found such a large quantity of talcum powder being imported as suspicious. Upon intercepting the containers, heroin was found buried under the packets of talcum powder. And officials weighed the heroin over the course of two days, which came up to 2988.22 kg with the approximate valuation of the drugs being Rs. 7 crores per kilogram.
