Narcotics Control Bureau Red Flags Mumbai As Cocaine Capital Of India
Cocaine capital of India: The Union Home Ministry has said that the country’s financial capital, Mumbai, has become a haven for drugs. Has released the latest report to this effect. The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) said the investigation had uncovered the matter. NCB suspects India of using raw cocoa paste for global cocaine consumption to process deadly drugs.
Mumbai is a major destination for many cities in the country. It has connections across the country. The center said the matter came to light with the seizure of drugs and arrests from several people. The NCB investigation has revealed that large-scale operations are being carried out on drug lords. The NCB attributed the spread of the drug mafia in India, Canada, the United States and Australia to the backwardness of metropolitan cities. The NCB has revealed that large-scale drug trafficking continues in Mumbai.
Recently, 2 kg PCP 1 kg cocaine was seized from M Ahmed of Vasai. Ahmed said the drugs were coming from SK Saurabh during the interrogation. During this sequence, SK Saurabh was caught and searched. 29.300 kg of MDA drug was found in the godowns. With this information, a large scale drug bust has taken place in Jammu as well. The investigation has revealed that 2,499 kilograms of cocaine seized in Sri Lanka in the last two years were supplied from Port Elizabeth, Panana, India. The value of these deadly drugs is estimated at ₹ 5 crore per kg in the international market, officials said.
The NCB arrested Uka Umeka, a Nigerian national, in a recent operation. The police investigation revealed that the drug came from a South American country. According to the Union Home Ministry, drugs are coming directly to Mumbai from different parts of the country. Mumbai has become a haven for drug dealers.
There is growing suspicion that cocaine processing, one of the largest manufacturers of the complete chemical potassium permanganate, could be diverted from South America to India through the drug cartel. This is mainly due to pressure from South American coca producing countries by the US Drug Enforcement Agency, the UK National Crime Agency, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and the Australian Drug Enforcement Agency.
Backtrack drug research has confirmed that 300 kg of cocaine (valued at Rs 1,500 crore in the international market) entered Mumbai in December 2018 through a syndicate with links in India, Australia and Canada, NCB officials said. The NCB revealed that the same syndicate had smuggled 200 kg of methamphetamine from Canada to Australia.
