New Delhi: In one of the biggest hauls in recent times, Narcotics Control Bureau Delhi Zone seized 50 Kg of high-quality Heroin, 47 Kg of suspected narcotics, 30 lacs of drug money in cash, cash counting machines, and other incriminating material from residential premises in Jamia Nagar, Shaheen Bagh on 27.04.22 on a tip-off.
The contraband was stored in travel bags, bag packs, and jute sacks. The seized Heroin originated from Afghanistan and the drug money was suspected to be channeled through Hawala. The seized Heroin was packed in packings of Flipkart. One Indian national has been arrested in the case.
During the ongoing investigations, it has been revealed that an Indo- Afghan syndicate based in Delhi/NCR or neighboring states seems to be connected to the case. These syndicates have expertise in manufacturing/adultering Heroin locally.

These syndicates have been smuggling goods to India through maritime as well as land border routes wherein heroin was smuggled in with various legitimate goods. Heroin was later extracted from those goods by the Indian counterparts with the help of some Afghan nationals.
Several raids were conducted and are still going on to bust the entire network. The syndicate was found to be connected with drug traffickers of the entire north region including the states of Punjab, Haryana, UP, Uttarakhand, and Delhi. Further investigation is on.
