    Acting on specific intelligence, the DRI (Directorate of Revenue Intelligence) seized cocaine contraband at Rajiv Gandhi International Airport in Hyderabad. The contraband, wrapped in brown tape, was cleverly hidden in the false bottom of a check-in suitcase and in false bottoms of four ladies’ handbags in the check-in baggage. They recovered a total of 5 kg of cocaine, worth around Rs 50 crore in the international grey market. The passenger had traveled from Laos to Hyderabad via Singapore and was heading to Delhi. Since cocaine is classified as a narcotic drug under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act 1985, it has been seized. The passenger has been arrested and put in judicial custody. Further investigations are being conducted to find other members of this syndicate.
