Hyderabad: The directorate of revenue Intelligence (DRI), Hyderabad, seized 3.129 kg of heroin, valued at approximately Rs. 21.90 crore, from a Malawian national at the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport here.
She was travelling on a business visa by Qatar Airways from Nairobi to Hyderabad via Doha.
During an examination of her checked-in baggage, the DRI sleuths found the contraband tightly packed in two polythene covers and ingeniously concealed under a false bottom at the base of the bag.
The passenger was arrested by the DRI and remanded to judicial custody by the court. Further investigation is underway.
