The Gujarat Anti-Terrorism Squad today recovered more than 150 kg of heroin worth Rs 900 crore from the Muzaffarnagar hideout of Haider, the smuggler who had been arrested last week in a raid in the Shaheen Bagh area of Delhi. Gujarat and Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) had earlier arrested the Muslim antisocial element in a joint operation from his house in Jamia Nagar of Delhi on 27 April.

The NCB had seized about 50 kg of ‘high-quality’ heroin, 47 kg of other suspected drugs and Rs 30 lakh in cash from the smuggler of the notorious Shaheen Bagh area. Besides the drugs and money, the NCB had also seized cash machines and other incriminating material during the raid.

Further investigation revealed that Haider had kept more drugs at his sister’s place in Muzaffarnagar. The agency seized huge quantities of chemicals too, suspected to be ingredients for making narcotics. The officials suspect the syndicate is involved in narco-terrorism and terror finance.

NCB’s Deputy Director General (Northern Region) Dnyaneshwar Singh said, “We have arrested hawala trader Shamim from Laxmi Nagar. He was sending money to Shahid in Dubai. Till now, a total of 5 people have been arrested in this syndicate.”

The officer said, “The wires of this syndicate are connected to Dubai, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran. The heroin recovered on the Attari border and Gujarat seems to be the same source, so our team will interrogate the arrested accused in Gujarat and the Attari border as well. The customs team has come to interrogate the accused whom we have caught.”

Out of the five arrested, two are Afghan nationals. All arrested are under NCB custody for further investigation in the case.

Gujarat and Indian Coast Guard had recently intercepted a boat called al Haj in Indian waters which had nine Pakistani crew members on board. The boat had attempted to return to Pakistan after throwing away several packets of narcotics into the sea. The packets were recovered and the ICG boat began a hot pursuit of the Pakistani vessel.

The authorities seized 56 kg of heroin worth 280 crores and arrested the nine Pakistanis. In the course of further probe, the found that the parcel was to be despatched to northern India and, accordingly, teams were sent there.

In a joint operation by and NCB, four accused were arrested; Haider from Jamianagar, Shaheen Bagh, Imran Amir from Muzaffarnagar, Avtar Singh from Okhla and Abdul Kakad, original resident of Kandahar, Afghanistan.

Till now, the Gujarat has seized a total of 296 kg of narcotics and suspected chemicals, with a total estimated international market value of Rs 1,500 crore, from different parts of the country.
