Two Nigerians were detained by Delhi Police’s Crime Branch for distributing drugs in Delhi-National Capital Region. A special squad detained the suspects, Herry alias Ifeanyi, 26, and Obiora, 50, as they arrived in Vasant Kunj to deliver the methaqualone to an unidentified person.
5 kilogram of marijuana and 355 grams of methaqualone were found in their possession when they were caught. The medicines that were seized are highly valuable on the world market.
Raj Kumar, the assistant commissioner of police, was provided with secret intelligence that the two alleged Nigerian drug dealers planned to deliver cocaine to an unidentified person between 10 and 11 p.m.
When the accused arrived to complete the sale, authorities stopped them both. The foreigners fled into the lanes when they were stopped by the squad in a panic. After that, both of them were caught.
When they were examined, a plastic bag containing a white drug substance was discovered. The drug was identified as methaqualone after being examined using the field kit. 5 kg of marijuana and 355 grams of methaqualone were found on them in total.
It was discovered that the two defendants entered India from Nigeria on three-month visas. They kept residing in the country illegally after the visa expired.
They were produced in the Tis Hazari court on Thursday, and have been remanded to five days in police custody for further investigation.
