In the Andaman Sea, Indian Coast Guard seizes major drugs haul
In a significant anti-narcotics section, an Indian Coast Guard Ship (ICGS) ‘Rajveer’ on Thursday arrested a vessel with six Myanmarese company on Indian seas shipping 1,160 kilograms of outlawed ‘Ketamine’ drug.
The narcotics were discovered packed in 1150 packets of 1 kg respectively.
“The ICG on September 19 had arrested the vessel with suspicious packets found in the gunny sacks which were later investigated by the Narcotics Control Bureau at the Port Blair,” stated Coast Guard Spokesperson DIG Vijay Kumar.
“The drugs were reportedly being provided to a Southeast Asian country. The whole operation was conducted independently by coast guards after a Dornier surveillance plane detected the vessel’s skeptical movement. Later on, the ship was arrested by ICGS Rajveer,” Coast Guard Inspector General Manish Pathak narrated India Today Tv.
Manish Pathak is the in-charge of Coast Guard for the whole Andaman and Nicobar Islands and has been pretty actively improving guarding in the distance against such ventures.
The Coast Guard containers in the range are very proactive facing such actions by drug peddlers who sell intoxicating material for more than Rs 1 crore per kilogram.
Nevertheless, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) is yet to determine the value of the huge batch of Ketamine drug occupied today. The interrogation of the Myanmarese team is still on.
