Incidentally, Dawood Yoga has been mentioned again and again in the Mumbai drug trafficking case. In February, a Zimbabwean woman with cancer was arrested on drug trafficking charges. At that time, the excise department did not disclose the woman’s name. However, it is known that a 40-year-old cancer patient tried to smuggle heroin and methamphetamine into India. The value of this heroin and methamphetamine is about R60 million.
Meanwhile, a large quantity of drugs was recently seized in Kolkata. Last Saturday evening, customs officials seized two and a half kilograms of heroin in both ends of the city. Which has a market value of more than 10 million rupees. Two people were also arrested on charges of drug trafficking. Employees of the department are trying to find the rest of the drug gang by interrogating them. But nothing compares to this huge amount of drugs in Mumbai.
