The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in Kolkata nabbed a Nigerian woman at the airport after she was found carrying 12 grams of cocaine in her private parts.
The woman, identified as 30-year-old David Blessing by PTI, was caught with 20 blots of LSD in her bag at the Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport, after which she was arrested.
The NCB later found out that she was also carrying 12 grams of cocaine in her private parts. Upon interrogation, she revealed that she had more drug capsules inside her body and was unable to take it out on her own.
“We took her to a nearby super speciality hospital where X-ray examination of her lower abdomen showed some concealment in her uterus and the same can be detected only through transvaginal ultrasound,” a senior officer of the NCB said.
Later in the evening, 1 mg of a white material, believed to be wrapping items, was recovered from inside her uterus.
“We will now interrogate the woman thoroughly and action will be taken as per law. She will be produced before the special Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances court at Barasat tomorrow,” he said.
It seems that the woman was supposed to deliver the consignment to someone at the Chinar Park area. We are now looking for her aides, a TOI report quotes Dilip Srivastav, zonal director of NCB.
