NEW DELHI: The recent arrest of an Afghan national from Lajpat Nagar in Delhi is being linked by the Gujarat anti-terrorist squad officials to the 2,900kg drug haul in Mundra. The Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) had, in September 2021, impounded two containers carrying about 2,900kg of heroin at Mundra port, in what was one of the biggest drug seizures last year.
According to ATS sources, the 8kg of heroin found in the Afghan national’s possession was processed by the same factory in Noida that had processed the drugs seized in Mundra. The ATS sleuths learnt about this connection while interrogating Hakamtullah Nurullah, the accused. Nurullah is also a suspect in the 50kg heroin seizure case in Jakhau registered in October this year.
ATS sources said the drug cartel was run by Iranian, Afghan and Pakistani nationals —while the Iranians and the Pakistanis pushed drugs into India, the Afghan nationals living in the country were involved in processing the drugs. “Some Afghan nationals stay put in India after coming here on medical or business visas. They then get involved in the business of processing illicit drugs,” an official said. The ATS officials said Nurullah too had come to India on a tourist visa in 2018 and had been staying in Delhi ever since.
