Bhuj, May 26th

The Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) has seized 56 kg of cocaine from a container near Mundra port in Gujarat’s Kutch district, a DRI official said on Thursday.

The value of the seized contraband has not yet been revealed.

Based on specific information, a team of DRI officials searched the container that arrived at Mundra port some time ago from a foreign country and has since been held at the Container Freight Station nearby, the official said.

The DRI team found 56 kg of cocaine hidden inside the imported objects, the official said.

The drug seizure comes a month after DRI recovered about 260 kg of heroin after a raid at a container station near Kandla harbor in Kutch.

In September last year, DRI, in the single largest heroin shipment in India, had seized about 3,000 kg of the drug, which is believed to come from Afghanistan, from two containers in the port of Mundra.
