Mumbai, Sept 1: The Bureau of Narcotics Control (NCB) arrested four people on Tuesday in connection with the case against suspected drug dealer Ajay Singh, nicknamed Mamu, and actor Armaan Kohli.
After questioning the two defendants, further operations were initiated by NCB at various locations in Mumbai. The agency seized a total of 118 grams of mephedrone and 13 grams of cocaine and arrested four people, including two Nigerians. There have been six arrests in total.
An official said the NCB had seized the mephedrone and intercepted Mohamed Ajaz Sayed, who was summoned by Juhu Gal Chia Bai, after his name appeared under investigation, as part of a follow-up operation. Based on the initial interrogation of Chiya Bhai, an Imran Ansari was found by Sayyid on Monday for his alleged role in buying drugs. During their interrogation, the names of two Nigerian nationals came to the fore.
Accordingly, a team of officials found Monday night in Nalasopara a Nigerian, Uba Chinoso Wizdom, with a number of commercial mephedrones in Nalasopara. In this respect he is said to be the main supplier of mephedrone.
NCB intercepted another Nigerian, Nwachiyaso Israel Nwachukwu alias Sam, with a moderate amount of commercial mephedrone and cocaine at the Aari Milk Colony in Mumbai Tuesday morning.
“During the operation, he attacked the NCB team and a policeman was injured. He was taken to a nearby state hospital. Nwachukwu has lived in Mumbai for five years and runs an African drug cartel. It is the main traffic on this international route since it was confiscated. Cocaine comes from South America,” said one official.
The official added that by doing this they had broken into a large drug ring that supplied the city’s high-end party chains with cocaine.
Another African drug cartel member was caught confiscating moderate amounts of mephedrone and ecstasy. The Nigerian national, identified by the nickname Sunday Okeki Sunny, was arrested by Nalasopara on Tuesday.
“The person who was intercepted worked as a guard/bodyguard and was an actor by profession,” the employee added. An official said he worked with top Bollywood actors in the fight scenes.
