New Delhi: A Delhi University student was held at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport for allegedly carrying narcotic drugs worth Rs 12 lakh.
The student has been identified as one C Laltalnpuia (20) hailing from Manipur. He was scheduled to board a flight to Guwahati when he was intercepted by a CISF check squad at the Terminal-3 of the IGI airport at around 11 am.
The suspicious movement of the passenger led the CISF personnel to subject him to detailed frisking which led to the recovery of 16 kg tablets of pseudoephedrine, a popular narcotic stimulant, from his bag, informed a senior official.
Laltalnpuia informed the security personnel that he resides with his wife in Janakpuri area in West Delhi and that he was a student of the Delhi University.
"He informed the agencies that an agent gave him Rs 20,000 to do the job including to and fro tickets between Delhi and Guwahati. He was told to hand over the contraband to another person in Guwahati," the security official added.
