The Shaheen Bagh area of Delhi is once again in the news. The Delhi branch of Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Wednesday recovered 50 kg of heroin, 47 kg of suspected narcotics along with Rs 30 lakh in cash from Shaheen Bagh area. Giving information about this, DDG Dnyaneshwar Singh said that this heroin has come from Afghanistan and the cash seems to have come from the hawala channel.

NCB Chief on Drug bust

NCB Chief Pradhan said that there is a complete syndicate for this. These syndicates are smuggling goods into India through sea as well as land border routes. These people smuggle heroin along with various goods. Later, with the help of some Afghan nationals, Indian counterparts extract heroin from those goods. 

He said that recently the Taliban government of Afghanistan announced a ban on farming. But after the ban, there seems to be an increase in export and illegal smuggling outside. Heroin is available in the Indian market.

He further said that the investigation shows that this (drug bust of Rs 100 crore in Delhi's Shaheen Bagh) may have links with narco-terrorism. It has links with Dubai, Afghanistan and Pakistan. There are other people involved in this matter. 

NCB Deputy Director General SK Singh said that we had received input from a source that there is a huge quantity of heroin in an apartment in Shaheen Bagh. Our team recovered 50 kg of heroin, 47 kg of suspected narcotics, Rs 30 lakh in cash and a note counting machine.

Biggest Action by NCB

Giving information about the raid, the Narcotics Control Bureau said that this is the biggest action taken in recent times. NCB has also seized 50 kg of high quality heroin along with 47 kg of suspicious substances from the spot at Shaheen Bagh. Not only this, the agency has also seized 30 lakh cash, money counting machines along with other items from Jamia Nagar of Shaheen Bagh.

The seized heroin was packed in Flipkart packing. An Indian citizen has also been arrested in this case. NCB further said that in our investigation it has also been found that Indo-Afghan Syndicate sitting in Delhi-NCR and nearby states has a direct connection with this matter. It seems that these syndicates are experts in making and adulterating heroin.
