The largest consignment of drugs recovered by the DRI is said to be worth Rs 9,000 crore.
SP leader Sunil Singh Sajan has tweeted, ‘The biggest consignment of heroine in the history of India worth 9 thousand crores has been caught at Mundra port in Gujarat. The owner of the house where the drug is found is also jailed, then why not sue the port owner? Because the owner of this port is Adani ji, the best friend of Modi ji and Shah ji.
Some channels of Godi Media are reporting the seized consignment as hidden inside an imported package of Ashi Trading Company of Vijayawada. And its connection is being linked to the import of talc stones from Afghanistan. It is also being told that these drugs were being imported in the name of ‘talcum powder’, which was caught red handed.
