    Acting on specific intelligence, the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) seized cocaine contraband at Rajiv Gandhi International Airport in Hyderabad. The contraband, which was wrapped in brown tape, was cleverly concealed in the false bottom of a check-in suitcase and in false bottoms of four ladies’ handbags in the check-in baggage. A total of 5 kg of cocaine, valued at around Rs 50 crore in the international grey market, was recovered.

    The passenger had traveled from Laos to Hyderabad via Singapore and was on their way to Delhi. Since cocaine is considered a narcotic drug under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act 1985, it has been seized. The passenger has been arrested and remanded to judicial custody. Further investigations are underway to trace other members of this syndicate.
