Adani Group:We have no policing authority over containers

Adani Group We have no policing authority over containers

New Delhi: Adani Group has issued a statement on the “malicious” social media campaign against the group on the seizure of illegal drugs at Mundra Port.

On September 16, a joint operation by the DRI and Customs unearthed a large cache of contraband heroin. This was from two containers from Afghanistan that had arrived at the Mundra International Container Terminal (MICT), Mundra Port.

“We thank and congratulate the DRI & Customs teams for seizing the illegal drugs and apprehending the accused. Government of India’s competent authorities such as the Customs and the DRI open, examine and seize unlawful cargo. No port operator across the country can examine a container. Port operators are only running the port,” Adani Group said.

“We sincerely hope that this statement will put to rest the motivated, malicious and false propaganda being run on social media against the Adani Group. APSEZ is a port operator providing services to shipping lines. We have no policing authority over the containers. The millions of tonnes of cargo pass through the terminals in Mundra or any of our ports,” it added.
