Vadodara, Nov 22 (UNI) In a joint operation, the state Narcotis Control Bureau (NCB) and Anti-Terrorism Squad have unearthed a narcotic drugs manufacturing unit at Bhadarwa in Savli taluka of the district and arrested three foreign nationals allegedly involved in the racket.
Acting on a tip-off, the sleuths raided the factory yesterday and seized the contraband worth Rs three crore.
The factory, which was allegedly exporting narcotic drugs to China and other Asian countries without having any export- import licence, had been sealed, official sources said.
The three foreign nationals, including one Chinese and two from Malaysia, had been booked under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act after they were nabbed by the police near Bharuch tool gate. The accused trio, who had checked into a hotel in Vadodara a couple of days ago, had escaped hours before the joint operation was carried out, the sources said.
