Dubai Customs foils drugs smuggling bid

DUBAI: Customs has foiled an attempt to smuggle Dh12 million worth of pure cocaine hidden inside a passenger’s baggage bound for New Delhi from Lagos through Dubai.

Dubai Customs thwarted the bid to smuggle 8.5kg of pure cocaine which was hidden inside the frame of an African passenger’s bag. The operation, which began in Lagos, Nigeria and ended in the Indian capital New Delhi after transit through Dubai, culminated in the seizure of the haul, valued at as much as Dh12 million last month.

The information provided to Indian authorities by Dubai Customs led to the apprehension of the accused after locating his place of residence, while the bag with its contents was seized upon arrival at the airport.
