Photos: Police arrest two Nigerian men in India for supplying drugs, recovers 2kg heroin

The Ludhiana police on Wednesday, May 17th, arrested two Nigerian nationals identified as Celestine Ikeweta (37) and Edeh Sunday Chukwudi, 29, from Delhi for supplying drugs in Punjab and recovered 2kg heroin from two places in the district after their interrogation.
Deputy inspector general (Ludhiana range) Yurinder Singh Hayer said that during investigation of a previous case in which an accused, Balvir Singh, was arrested with heroin, it was found that two Nigerians, residing at Vikas Puri in New Delhi, are the suppliers of the drugs.

A team, headed by Dakha SHO Lakhur Singh, was sent to Delhi which arrested the accused and brought them to Ludhiana.

During their interrogation, the police recovered a packet conatining1kg heroin buried at a deserted place near a brick kiln at Chowkiman and another1-kg packet of the drug buried near railway platform in Mullanpur. Police also recovered a Honda Civic car used by the accused for smuggling.

Police said Ikeweta, married to a woman from Manipur, has been living in India for the past five years while Chukwudi has been in the country for the past two and a half years. The accused have come on business visa and projected themselves as businessmen involved in import and export of spare parts. Hayer said the accused supply drugs in different states after bringing them from across the border.
"Heroin is produced across the western border of Punjab (Pakistan) but we are investigating as to which country they brought the drug from and who are the other persons associated with them. We will nab the mastermind soon," he added.
A case under Sections 21, 61 and 85 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act has been registered.

Ludhiana DIG Yurinder Singh Hayer said New Delhi is the main operating centre for foreigners involved in drug racket. He said recently some peddlers were arrested in the district with drugs which they bought from Nigerians in New Delhi.
