In one of the biggest drugs haul, an Anti-Narcotics Cell (ANC) seized around four kgs of heroin valued at about Rs 6.15 crore from a Rajasthan-based man who was nabbed in Bandra.

In the fresh case, the arrested accused has been identified as Mangilal Kajodmal Meghwal, he hails from Kota district in Rajasthan. But accused Meghwal is an habitual offender and did come to Mumbai to deliver the consignment. Around five to six time he visited the city and delivered the contraband.

This time accused Meghwal has come via train with the heroin but he was nabbed as he came out from the station, he is just the delivery boy role while the kingpin of this racket is the one who asked him to supply the drugs is in Rajasthan. He was asked to deliver the contraband to South Mumbai-based drug suppliers but before that he was caught, ANC sources said.

Sources further revealed that, DCP ANC Shivdeep Lande, who personally interrogating the accused Meghwal said he and fearless, glibly providing replying replies to  the questions very quickly giving the answer of every question, it seems that he is habitual offender and is well-versed with replies to all the questions the cops posed.   During the investigation it has come out that he was going to supply the drugs to a Nigerian national who is very active in this business and these people have set up den in South Mumbai.  After his arrest the big syndicate of drugs mafia is likely to break, sources further added.
