Two Sri Lankans, trying to board different flights to Chennai, were arrested by the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) on Tuesday at Kolkata airport. Initially, a woman (58) carrying 230 grams heroin worth Rs 23 lakh, was caught and handed over to the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).

The woman was allegedly concealing something underneath her clothes. On being frisked by the security agencies, she confessed she had an aide, after which a man who was taking another flight to Chennai was also arrested.

On Monday as well, Kolkata Police and NCB arrested two persons — Md Madhu (30) from Uttarpanchannagram, Anandapur, with 520 grams charas. He was an associate of another drug runner, Lalbabu, who was arrested on Sunday. On the same day, NCB arrested Rezaul Sardar from Swarupnagar in North 24-Parganas for smuggling of 1,400 metamphetamine and 1,800 bottles of Phensedyl. (India Times)
