RAILWAY PROTECTION FORCE, SWR BUSTED A DRUG

 TRAFFICKING ATTEMPT

As part of its o­ngoing drive against smuggling and illegal trafficking through the Indian Railways, the team of RPF Hubballi, busted a drug trafficking attempt through its jurisdiction. o­n a tip off, the joint team of RPF Hubballi and NCB Bengaluru arrested a young Ugandan lady in possession of a highly addictive drug believed to be methamphetamine. Based o­n Intelligence inputs, the team of RPF Hubballi alerted all its units at station as well as o­nboard.

A team comprising of ladies staff was sent o­n board train to trace the suspect, while the access control and cctv operations at the station was made active. The suspect, travelling in a sleeper coach of Karnataka Sampark Kranti, was intercepted and enquired. Her dubious behaviour made officials to check her bags and find two neatly packed Cerelac packets. o­n carefully opening the packets, the substance appearing to be drugs was found, which was later confirmed as methamphetamine.

The 995 grams of the seized drug is believed to be of approximately 1.5 crore in value and was supposed to be transferred from Delhi to Bangalore. The suspect is presently in police custody after production in court. The interrogation and probe by several law enforcement agencies is still o­n to find out her links with the traffickers in Karnataka or in the country. The local police is also probing about the links of the syndicate in the city.
