“Specific information was received through a reliable source that two persons would be coming to deliver Ice-drug or meth in the area of Machli Mandi, Ghazipur, New Delhi. The team acted upon the information and laid a trap that led to the apprehension of the two accused. From their possession, around one kg prohibited psychotropic substance Crystal Methamphetamine (Ice-drug/Meth) and a small quantity of Heroin was also recovered,” said PS Kushwah, DCP Special cell.
Accordingly, a case under relevant provisions of NDPS Act was registered at Special Cell, Lodhi colony, Delhi, and the accused persons arrested. Further efforts are being made to nab accomplices involved in the drug peddling racket.
