AHMEDABAD: The intelligence have seized 90 kilogram of heroin worth Rs 450 crores from a shipping container that arrived at the Pipavav port in Amreli district from Iran, on Friday.

The heroin was recovered in a joint search operation launched by the Gujarat Anti-Terrorist Squad(ATS) and the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI), said Gujarat DGP Ashish Bhatia. “To dodge the authorities, the drug syndicate had applied a unique modus operandi in which threads were soaked in a solution containing heroin, which were then dried, made into bales and packed in bags for export”, Bhatia said.

“The container, having large bags of threads, arrived at the Pipavav port from Iran nearly five months back. A forensic analysis of four suspicious bags having threads weighing nearly 395 kg revealed that the threads contained opiate derivative or heroin”, he added.
