The Mumbai Police Anti Narcotics Cell (ANC), which on Friday seized a 84 kg-consignment of amphetamine worth Rs 8.4 crore from a courier company in Andheri, have identified the source of the drugs as a man in Chennai. Efforts are now on to trace his whereabouts, said officers.
"Investigations have revealed that the source of the amphetamine is a man identified as Ramesh. We are now trying to find out more about Ramesh, and efforts are on to locate him," said a Crime Branch officer.
"The consignment was delivered from Chennai, and it was lying in the courier company's office for three days. Someone in Mumbai was meant to make arrangements for the consignment to be sent to Malaysia," said the officer.
Meanwhile, the ANC arrested two Nigerian nationals from the Masjid Bunder area on Monday for alleged possession of 150 gms of cocaine valued at Rs 9 lakh. The two arrested have been identified as Francis Aaja (31), a resident of Malad and Sebestian Uche (37), a resident of Kalina.
"We arrested them after a specific tip-off. Our investigations are on to find out who they were going to sell the cocaine to," said an officer from the ANC's Azad Maidan unit.
