One of the accused, Lagos (Nigeria) resident Abdul Latif alias Johnson, arrested on September 1, was involved in a drug case that also included Rahul Mahajan, son of slain BJP leader Pramod Mahajan, said a senior police official.

Latif had supplied cocaine to Mahajan's friend Sahil Zaroo who later passed it on to him, he said.

The other two arrested -- Mohammad Akhtar alias Raja and Hemant -- too had been arrested earlier in drug related cases.

Four mobile phones and a laptop were also recovered from their possession along with the 2.5 kg heroin.

The drugs were primarily meant for European destinations.
