Kingpin of drug racket held, 2 kg of Charas seized
Kolkata: The Kolkata Police in the wee hours on Thursday arrested one of the kingpin of narcotics supply racket from Ekbalpore police station area under the Port division. The sleuths have seized a huge amount of charas from the person who allegedly used to supply the stuff to rave parties in the city.
The person has been identified as Mohammad Mursalin, a resident of Mominpore Road. He used to procure drugs from the neinghbouring country Nepal and had alleged links with some other cross border countries too. "He would himself go to Nepal for fixing deal regarding supply of such consignment," an investigating officer said.
According to police sources, Mursalin had made a gang of his own that dealt with the supply of charas and other drugs. He would entice the unemployed youth in the area by telling them that it was a lucrative business and would fetch a lot of money.
"We had our eyes on him for quite some time but he was eluding us. He was nabbed on the basis of a credible source information," a police officer said. Mursalin's gang primarily dealt with ganja and charas but would also import narcotics like heroin, brown sugar etc on demand. The sleuths had seized more than 2 kg charas from him while he was arrested from Meher Ali Mondal Lane in Ekbalpore.
"He was supposed to hand over the stuff to some other person. We will take him into custody and will grill him to unearth the root of this racket," an officer said.
