    In Visakhapatnam, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) detained a shipping container suspected of carrying narcotic drugs mixed with dried yeast weighing around 25,000 kgs. The entire shipment was seized and a case was filed as part of ‘Operation Garuda’.

    The CBI, with the help of the Customs Department and based on information received through Interpol, detained the container at Visakhapatnam Port. The container was originally shipped from Santos Port, Brazil, and was supposed to be delivered to a company in Visakhapatnam.
