The parcel boxes contained photo frames and other products. On careful examination of the photo frames in the consignments revealed a plastic cover containing a white powder-like substance sandwiched between the 2 layers of the photo frame. This substance tested positive for Pseudoephedrine, a controlled substance under the NDPS Act 1985.

A total of 22 such photo frames have been found in these 2 parcels, with each parcel containing 11 photo frames. The total quantity of 14.2 kg of pseudoephedrine has been retrieved from these photo frames. Preliminary investigations revealed that the consignments were booked using fraudulent Aadhar card having Hyderabad address by two persons, possibly from Tamil Nadu. Further investigations are underway. Advertisement
