NEW DELHI: Two Africans, including a Tanzanian woman, have been arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) here after drugs worth Rs 40 crore were allegedly seized from them, officials said on Thursday.
Officials in the central anti-narcotics agency said the other person arrested in the case is a Nigerian man, identified as Augustin (33).
They said the two were apprehended on Wednesday after the Delhi zonal unit of the NCB first nabbed the woman, Tanzanian national Beatrice K Ndyetabula (40), from the IGI Airport here.
They said the woman landed in Delhi from Mumbai and when she was intercepted and frisked in the terminal area, 27 ribbon rolls concealing 4-kg of cocaine powder were recovered from her hand baggage.
