Bengaluru: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in two separate incidents, arrested six people with three kgs of high-quality synthetic narcotics and marijuana.

The NCB’s Bengaluru Zonal Unit Director Amit Ghawate informed that the Hyderabad sub-zone intercepted a parcel and seized 3 kgs of pseudoephedrine hidden in the falls line areas of three ‘lehengas’, a traditional Indian skirt.

In a statement, Ghawate stated that the NCB reacted swiftly and arrested the supplier in Chennai. “To avoid being caught by law enforcement agency, the item was properly concealed and stitched. The parcel was destined to Australia.”

According to the sources, four people were arrested at Devanahalli, Bengaluru, while on their way to Hyderabad, with commercial quantities of Ecstasy pills, Methamphetamine, and Methaqualone in their possession.

As per the reports, the accused are from Vishakhapatnam, Bihar, and Hyderabad, respectively. According to the NCB officer, their fifth accomplice was a high-quality marijuana supplier who was also arrested.

Ghawate further informed that, the gang was procuring a variety of drugs from a Bengaluru-based supplier and selling them in Hyderabad parties and pubs.
