Exclusive : Thane CP Parambir Singh TT on drug haul:
In an exclusive interview to NewsX, Thane Police Commissioner Parambir Singh revealed the entire operation of drug haul in Mumbai.
“After the arrest of a Nigerian national, our team swiftly moved on with the information on Swami, the trail that lead us to an Avon factory in Solapur," asserted Mr. Singh.
An alleged drug peddler, Dhaneshwar Swamy was apprehended on April 14 in Solapur and 5.50 kg Ephedrine powder was seized from him, he added.
Mr. Singh mentioned that large amount of illegal drugs were found in the compound and more arrests were done later on, including a company’s director who was found to be responsible for smuggling drugs outside the country.
“Initially we felt it's just an inter-state racket. However, we deciphered it was an international racket”, stated Mr. Singh.
Apart from some bigwigs, fugitive Kishore Rathod is also in the ‘Wanted’ list of Gujarat police and ATS, claimed Mr. Singh. “Mamta Kulkarni's name was also under DEA’s scanner after her husband Vicky Goswami's drug racket was busted. Mamata’s role is being investigated," added Mr. Singh.
