NCB on the look-out for buyers of 30 kg cocaine from South America

The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) officials are on the lookout for “clients” all over Mumbai and Goa who were supposed to buy the 30kg of high quality cocaine imported from South America by a gang of four.

The NCB on Tuesday arrested Uday C Dhanak, imported car dealer from Santa Cruz, for cocaine smuggling. The NCB last week had arrested four persons-Dhanak, UK national Mir Rahi Hussain, Santander Tarazona from Bolivia and Juan Fernando from Columbia-and had seized 29.5kg of cocaine from them.

Two teams are already camping in Mumbai and Goa to locate the clients but many of them have gone underground and have switched off their cell-phones immediately after learning about the arrest of their colleagues.

Acting on specific information, NCB zonal director Yashodhan Wange and his staff on February 17 raided a hotel in Khar and arrested three foreign nationals and seized 19kg of cocaine.

This is the largest seizure of cocaine in the past five years in India.
