    Customs officials at the international airport in Hyderabad seized over two kilograms of heroin worth Rs 14.2 crore from a woman passenger from the Republic of Burundi. The woman, who is 43 years old, was identified and intercepted based on passenger profiling. She arrived on a flight from Nairobi, Kenya on July 2.

    Upon examination of her baggage, customs officials noticed that eight traditional African dresses, one handbag, and three soaps seemed heavier than normal. Upon further inspection, they found black/clear plastic packets hidden in the walls and layers of the dresses, handbag, and soaps. These packets contained brownish-white powder, which was later confirmed to be heroin. In total, 2,027 grams of heroin were seized.
