One Nigerian Among Three Drug Dealers Held, 5 Kg Heroin Seized - Crime by Princess-Helen-(f) : 8:23 am On Sep 05
he Delhi Police Special Cell has arrested three suspected drug dealers, including a Nigerian, and seized 5 kilogram heroin worth Rs 20 crore.
There was a specific information with the Special Cell, the anti-terror unit of the Delhi Police, about the movement of Punjab-based drug dealers coming to the national Capital to receive heroin from Delhi-based African origin person.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Special Cell, Sanjeev Yadav said, on September 1, police learnt that two Punjab based drug dealers would come near Shiv Mandir, Hastsal, Uttam Nagar, to receive a consignment of heroin from an African origin dealer.
In the wee hours on September 2, Dsitadimma Casmir Arinze (37), a Nigerian national and drug supplier, handed over two packets of heroin to Jaswant Singh alias Sonu (30) and Charanjit Singh alias Jeeta (27).
The trio was nabbed and five kilogram of heroin worth Rs 20 crore in international market was seized from them, he said.
Two kilogram of heroin was recovered from Sonu, one kilogram from Jeeta and two kilogram from Arinze.
Six cell phones with various SIM cards used in the drug trafficking activities were also recovered.
During a search Arinze’s rented house, police seized a fake passport of Sierra Leone having multiple fake visa stickers of India. He used this passport for getting house on rent and rooms in hotels, the DCP said.
Initially, Arinze tried to mislead police by saying that his name is Rowland and he is a Sierra Leone national. Later, he revealed that he actually belongs to Nigeria.
He had come to India in 2008 on a business visa for six months. But even after expiry of visa, he continued his illegal stay in India, said the officer.
Arinze came into contact with a fellow Nigerian who asked him to supply drugs for quick money. He worked for Michael initially but later started supplying drugs independently.
For the last five years, the Nigerian national was supplying drugs independently in Delhi and Punjab. He also used to send heroin consignments to England, France, Canada, South Africa, etc through courier companies, said the officer.
He also used to procure heroin from Afghan nationals. The Afghan nationals visit India, bring heroin to Delhi by several means, including swallowing heroin filled capsules, said the DCP.
It is suspected that the arrested Punjab drug dealers have been procuring heroin from Arinze for the last two years.
