In the past Devbhoomi Dwarka had been a hub of smuggling contrabands and weapons.
Just a month earlier, in one of the largest ever seizures in the world, 3,000 kg heroin smuggled from Afghanistan was seized by Indian authorities at the Mundra port in Gujarat.
The breakthrough came after the agency received a specific tip-off about a consignment imported by Aashi Trading Company, located in Vijayawada in Andhra Pradesh, declared as semi-processed Talc stones originating from Afghanistan and shipped from Bandar Abbas Port in Iran to Mundra Port.
In July, the Directorate had seized about 300 kg of heroin from some containers at Nhava Sheva Port in Navi Mumbai. The consignment had also originated from Bandar Abbas port in Iran. It was being smuggled in the garb of talcum powder.
At the same port, the agency had seized 191 kg of heroin in August 2020 and arrested three private persons named Suresh Bhatia, Mohammed Nauman and Mahendra Nigam, apart from two Customs house agents, Meenanath Bodake and Kondibhau Gunjal.
That consignment had been routed through Chabahar in Iran from Pakistan’s Gwadar.
The cargo was declared as an Ayurvedic product, mulethi (licorice), and the drugs was concealed in plastic pipes painted to resemble bamboos. The importer company was identified as Sarvim Exports, which was located at Derawal Nagar in Delhi.
On February 12, 2020, GreatGameIndia issued an alert regarding a suspicious shipment off the western coast of India. The ship belonged to a Chinese shipping company blacklisted by the Americans and was destined to Pakistan.
Further investigation revealed the seized shipment carried launching gear for missiles and that China was secretly shipping nuclear arms to Pakistan.
Sources in Coastal intelligence told GreatGameIndia the intercept was based on a tip-off from the Americans who were monitoring the entire fleet of the shipping line COSCO believed to be a front of Chinese intelligence.
