Brazilian Arrested With 85 Cocaine Capsules At Delhi Airport

Customs officials seized 85 oval-shaped capsules of cocaine worth nearly Rs 11.28 Crore at Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGI).

“Based on specific intelligence, it was found that one Brazil national who departed from Sao Paulo Airport (Brazil) for Dubai and arrived at T-3, IGI Airport, New Delhi was diverted to the green channel for the x-ray of his baggage by the customs officers on duty,” customs officials said.
Subsequently, on medical examination of the pax, specific material was found to be secreted inside the body, customs officials said.

“The medical procedure yielded the recovery of a total of 85 oval-shaped capsules containing a total of 752 grams of a white powdery substance, suspected to be narcotics. When this material was subjected to a diagnostic test, prima facie it appeared to contain a commercial quantity of cocaine,” officials said.
