Bengaluru: The Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) officers intercepted a person at Bengaluru railway station, search of whose bag led to the recovery of 16 kg heroin valued at  Rs 112 crore in the international market.

The narcotic was ingeniously concealed in the false cavity of the trolley bag carried by him.

“This person had arrived in Bengaluru by the morning flight from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and was on his way to New Delhi, when he was intercepted. The said person has been arrested and further investigations are underway,” the statement said.

DRI is committed to making utmost efforts to protect India from the menace of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances that have wide ranging socio-economic implications, it said.

In the financial year 2021-22, through its operations conducted across the length and breadth of India, the DRI seized 3,463 kg of heroin, 208 kg of pseudoephedrine and 321 kg of cocaine, together valued at almost  Rs 19,800 crore in the international illicit market, it added.
