Almost two months after the ADC reported about drugs cartel run by women, drugs queen Savitri Periswami Devendra alias Savitri Akka who has been givings slips to the Antop Hill police, was nabbed by Wadala TT police recently.
Despite the various complaints filed by the city based NGO at the Antop Hill police station against drugs queen Savitri Periswami Devendra alias Savitri Akka, she always managed to give slips to Antop Hill police, but finally she is caught by Wadala Police along with another lady in possession with deadly brown sugar.
According to police sources, the arrested Savitri Akka is a very well known face in drugs cartel, two days back one lady was arrested by Wadala TT police with brown Sugar when cops inquired with her from where she brought this powder, she revealed Savitri Akka's name and said that she purchased from Akka.
During the investigations, Wadala TT police established Akka's role and later she was arrested. A city based NGO had filed a complaint against a Sion-Koliwada based lady drugs dealer Savitri at the Antop Hill police station and sent a copy to all the top cops of Mumbai Police.
Senior Police Inspector (SPI) from Wadala police station Rajendra Sangle said, “Around two days back, our officer nabbed a lady and during the interrogation she revealed Akka's name. She was in police custody and on Monday she has produced before the court again for further remand, we have recovered brown sugar from their possession.”
Interestingly, 'Savitri Akka' as she is known, is emerging as number one women drugs dealer among the elite crowd of Mumbai, despite many cases registered on her name in the Antop Hill Police station and Anti Narcotic Cell (ANC) unit she seems to have no fear – drug dealers from Mumbai as well as far off areas areas like Satara, Bangalore, Ahmednagar, etc allegedly approach Akka and take consignment from her even today, sources said.“Savitri Akka is active in this drugs dealing business from past 30 years and now a bunch of youth working under her guidance – one of her punter Airum is looking after all her work and he is the person who always approaches cops whenever they take action on Akka's businesses. Akka is known for supplying Marijuana in different parts of the city including Brown Sugar and MD. In her initial days, Akka was working for one lady namely Papa Mani Devendra and from her, she learned all the work and later started her own business. Akka also owns a bunglow in Goa, huge property at her native place and couple of rooms in Sion-Koliwada,” sources said. “From the very beginning, we are saying Savitri Akka is known for supplying Marijuana, brown Sugar, MD and different types of drugs, we approached Antop Hill police many times but they failed to take action against her. Now, we will provide details and information to Wadala TT police about Akka and demand strict action against her,” said advocate Pradip Nambiar from ICGS.
