The Hyderabad police today seized huge quantities of drugs in two separate incidents.
Revealing the details, Commissioner of Police Anjani Kumar said that 14.2 kgs of drugs had been seized in the North Zone limits.
The police had conducted raids on an international courier agency at Begumpet following a tip-off by the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI), Kumar said. He added that the drugs were packed in photo frames to avoid suspicion. 22 photo frames had been seized from the courier agency, he said.
The market value of the drugs seized was Rs. 5.5 crore, with the value of the drugs in the Indian market being Rs. 40 lakh per kg, Kumar said.
The CP also said that the accused involved in the drug trafficking had used a fake Aadhaar number. Two persons from Tamil Nadu were being suspected in the issue, he said.
Detailing the second incident, Kumar said that the police had seized 110 MDMA tablets in Asif Nagar and arrested three persons.
He said that the names of the arrested accused were Sai Charan, Racharla Ankit and Ajay Sai, and that they had been selling the tablets without any permission.
The trio had been selling the drugs to children from middle class families, Kumar said, and urged the parents of children to keep an eye on their wards to prevent them from becoming addicted to banned drugs.
