Deputy Director-General, Operations, (NCB) Sanjay Singh said, “The seized heroin originated from Afghanistan and drug money is suspected to be channelled through hawala.” According to the press release by the NCB, it has been revealed during investigations that an Indo- Afghan syndicate based in Delhi/NCR or neighboring states seems to be connected to the case. These syndicates have expertise in manufacturing/adultering Heroin locally. These syndicates have been smuggling goods to India through maritime as well as land border routes wherein heroin was smuggled in alongside various legitimate goods. Heroin was later extracted from those goods by the Indian counterparts with the help of some Afghan nationals.
