New Delhi: A 25-year old man was arrested for allegedly trying to smuggle narcotics worth Rs seven lakh at the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) on Thursday.
Lal Ruatlian, resident of Churachandpur district in Manipur, was intercepted by a CISF check squad after he was found moving suspiciously at the Terminal-1D of the domestic airport.
"Ruatlian was detected at about 0940 am when he arrived at the terminal to catch a flight to Guwahati. He was taken for a detailed frisking which led to the recovery of nine-kg tablets of Pseudoephedrine," CISF spokesperson Hemendra Singh said.
The CISF then called up sleuths of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), who later arrested him under anti-drugs laws.
Ruatlian was residing in Janakpuri area of the national capital and was here for tourist purposes, they said.
The NCB is probing further, they added.
