The Delhi Crime Branch arrested a 22-year-old Afghan national for allegedly processing and smuggling heroin in Delhi-NCR.
The accused was identified as Wahidullah, an Afghan national who was caught with 4 kg of heroin. The crime branch also found that he is not just a peddler but also allegedly running a drugs manufacturing unit in UP and Delhi.
According to the crime branch, they recently busted a racket and found that foreign nationals were smuggling drugs from other countries through drones and boats. Once the consignment reached India, police said the accused used delivery apps to also deliver drugs to clients.
The officials stated that they received a tip from the Gujarat Police (ATS) about the accused and his gang.
The officials added that he came to India in 2016 on a medical VISA for 6 months but got involved in drug dealing with his father. His father would import and sell dry fruits but suffered losses in business. He then started manufacturing and supplying narcotics in NCR. He further disclosed that they had a secret processing unit in UP too.
The police teams are now investigating further to break the syndicate operating with him.
