Officials of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) have busted a racket involving the trafficking of banned drugs to foreign countries including the USA.
The trafficking was being done with the help of the internet.
On May 5, officials first raided the residence and call centre of an Ashish Jain, and seized cash of Rs. 3.71 crore, drugs, mobile phones, laptops and other electronic items, but did not arrest him since they did not yet have enough evidence against him.
They arrested Jain and two family members today and termed him the kingpin of the racket. The officials found that he was supplying psychotropic substances, and was carrying out his alleged illegal activities in the name of JER Infinity Private Limited.
The officials said that the accused had supplied drugs over 1,000 times to his clients.
