Bengaluru: CCB Anti-Narcotics Wing of Bengaluru Police on Thursday busted an international drug racket and arrested one person along with drugs worth Rs. one crore in a major breakthrough in crackdown on the drug supply and mafia in the state.

The arrested person has been identified as Atif Salim, a Kolkata resident. The police also seized a Skoda car, a KTM Duke bike, a weighing machine, Rs. one lakh in cash and drugs worth Rs. one crore from Atif Salim.

According to police Atif used to import drugs from Canada and was supplying in the country. The modus operandi of the accused was that he would take orders for Hydro Ganja and E Ciggratte tubes from an online website and would co-ordinate with his main man in Canada detailing about his requirement through an app.

The man in Canada then would courier the drugs using packaging of Amazon.com and that is how the drugs would reach Atif in India. To escape the customs and security checking the drugs would be packed into the milk powder tins made for children.

Costing about Rs 4000 per gram, 2.750 kg of Hydro Ganja was seized from Atif’s house during the raid along with E-cigarette of weed flavors were also seized.
