New Delhi: An alleged drug peddler was held on November 20 near a bus stand in north east Delhi with over 4kg of cannabis, estimated to be worth Rs 40 lakh, seized from him, the police said.

Acting on a tip-off, a Crime Branch team arrested the 37-year-old accused near the bus stand in Nand Nagri.

 

He was allegedly carrying 4.184 Kg cannabis, brought from Nepal, estimated to be worth Rs 40 lakh, said Ram Gopal Naik, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime).

The accused was carrying some drugs in his pockets while most of it was stuffed in his car, he said.

The Crime Branch was working on cracking a syndicate of drug peddlers in the Delhi-NCR that used to bring drugs from Nepal and supply them in the area, the officer said.

The police said that the accused came in contact with a Nepalese man, who introduced him to the next contact in Nepal.

During the investigation, the accused told police that the contraband was brought to Delhi a few days back and was to be supplied to a man from Haryana.
