Congress for probe by Supreme Court judges into drug haul at Mundra port | Goa News

Panaji: Alleging that a drug syndicate is operating from the Adani Mundra port in Gujarat, Congress on Sunday said that a commission of two sitting Supreme Court judges should initiate an investigation into the 3,000kg heroin that was seized on September 15.
AICC national spokesperson Shama Mohammed said that the drugs were found in two containers that arrived from Afghanistan via Iran and imported in the name of Aashi Trading Company of Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh.
“A point of concern is that these drugs have been sourced from Afghanistan. The money earned on the illegal sale of these drugs can be used against India… to destabilise our country by funding separatists and terrorist activities,” Mohammed told a press conference at the state Congress headquarters.
The Narcotics Control Bureau, which has been tasked with the matter of drug law enforcement, is without a full time head for the past 18 month, she said. tnn
