Bengaluru: More smugglers take post office route to ship drugs from abroad | Bengaluru News – Times of India


BENGALURU: A unit of Bangalore Customs recently seized a parcel containing psychotropic drugs like ecstasy, MMDA and brown sugar that reached Chamarajpet Foreign Post Office from the Netherlands. Investigation led to the arrest of a city youth who had allegedly ordered the drugs through the dark web.

With various enforcement agencies like police, Customs and Narcotics Control Bureau tightening their grip on drug smuggling, many dealers are using the postal service to transport them from overseas.
Customs sources revealed smugglers are increasingly bringing psychedelic drugs into Bengaluru through foreign post as there’s a spurt in the number of unregistered parcels without proper delivery address. “The parcel which reached Chamarajpet contained nearly 100 ecstasy pills and blocks of MDMA and brown sugar in a semi-powdered form. The suspect was to receive it as soon as it arrived from Europe,” explained an investigating officer.
Following the seizure, the Customs team tracked down the man who had ordered the drugs. However, sleuths didn’t divulge his identity or the value of drugs seized. They are trying to ascertain his local links and the source of the drug cache.
