Three foreigners have been arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) sleuths here for allegedly smuggling in liquid cocaine by concealing it in condoms, officials said today.
They said two Brazilians and a Nigerian have been arrested by the agency from a guest house in the Paharganj area of the central Delhi on April 16.
About 2.6 kgs of liquid cocaine, a party drug, was found concealed in condoms and was kept in tin boxes by the two people from Brazil and they were supposed to hand it over to a Nigerian man here, they said.
All the three have been arrested under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, they said.
"The trafficking of liquid cocaine concealed in food stuff from South American countries to India is a new modus operandi being adopted by African syndicates to deceive the drug law enforcement officers," Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) zonal Director Madho Singh said.
