A massive consignment which valued at more than $2.7 billion was confiscated at Gujarat’s Mundra port by the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI). Indian investigators captured roughly 3 tons of heroin in a huge drug operation at a port in western India.

Two Indians were arrested after the heroin, which was kept in two containers marked as carrying talc, was found by the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) at Mundra Port in the western state of Gujarat, the government agency said.

The consignment – with one container carrying nearly 2,000kg of heroin and another holding nearly 1,000kg – originated from Afghanistan and was shipped from a port in Iran to Gujarat, the DRI said.

“Searches have been conducted in Ahmedabad, Delhi, Chennai, Gandhidham and Mandvi in Gujarat,” the agency said in a statement.

The investigation conducted so far has also revealed the involvement of Afghan nationals, who are under investigation, they added.
