Chennai, Feb 15 (UNI) In a major haul, officials of the Air Customs Intelligence unit today seized 650 gm of Heroin, worth Rs 65 lakh in the international market, being smuggled to Spain.
Talking to newspersons here, Air Customs Commissioner C Rajan said the consignment was concealed in four packets at the back of two portraits of Gods. Each portrait contained two packets each.
He said the parcel was booked from a courier company in Puducherry and addressed to Spain.
While it was being loaded in a cargo flight late last night, the officials grew suspicious and did not load it into the aircraft.
The consignment was opened this morning in the presence of senior officials, who found it contained two sarees, two lungis, a dairy and two portraits, behind which the drug was concealed.
The address given in the courier parcel was found to be fake.
