Bengaluru: Continuing its crackdown on drug-smuggling, the Customs at the Kempegowda International Airport here detected 400 gm of Methaqualone worth Rs 20 lakh in a parcel on Wednesday.

The consignment, concealed in a leather bag, was addressed to a Nigerian who was already arrested in a recent case involving 1.98 kg Ecstasy pills here. Various security agencies have joined hands in the fight against drug-trafficking, peddling, and consumers.

The crackdown started a month ago when the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) arrested three people, including a woman Anikha, for allegedly supplying drugs to Kannada film actors and singers.

Following this, the Bengaluru police too launched a drive and arrested at least 15 people, including film actresses Ragini Dwivedi and Sanjjanaa Galrani, and foreign drug- peddlers, realtor besides rave party organisers.

Many of the accused are at large and among them was former minister late Jeevaraj Alva’s son Aditya Alva.
