New Delhi: At least two drug peddlers, part of an international drug racket, were arrested here and two kg heroin valued at Rs 8 crore in the international market was recovered from them, police said on Friday.

They used to supply drugs in Delhi and the National Capital Region

“A team of special cell on Wednesday night arrested Dilbagh Singh and his uncle Gurnaam Singh from the Singhu border area,” Deputy Commissioner of Police, Sanjeev Kumar Yadav said.

“They received a consignment of heroin from their gang members of African origin residing in Dwarka,” Yadav said.

According to him, two kg heroin and Rs 20 lakh in Rs 2,000 notes were recovered from the two Punjab residents.

They used to supply drugs in Delhi and the National Capital Region, Yadav said.

“They said the heroin was brought by other gang members from Afghanistan and Pakistan. It was to be supplied in Manipur, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab and the NCR.

“The gang members in Pakistan and Afghanistan consumed insoluble capsules of heroin in their stomachs. After landing in India, they flushed the capsules out and supplied them to drug dealers in Delhi and Punjab,” Yadav said.

The African members sent consignments of heroin to other countries including England, France, Canada and South Africa through courier companies, police said.
