    How was the 40Kg brought into the country? By boat or hidden in import cargo? This is happening far too often.

    40KG cannot be transported easily. He must have got a 100Kg consignment and only 40Kg left. But Police will not follow to the top and check all the details of the full local operation but just put the blame on Dubai. Pur drama only.
