Continuing its war on the drugs mafia, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has seized 2.04 kg of charas (weed) and arrested two peddlers from Thane and Palghar, officials said here on Wednesday.

Following a tip-off, an NCB Mumbai Zonal unit team zeroed in on one Avinash Arun Singh, 24, a resident of Nalasopara in Palghar, and found the narcotics hidden in a backpack on his person.

After intercepting him near the Sports Complex bus stand in Bhayander (Thane), the NCB swooped on another peddler Shravan L. Gupta, 38, near his home in Nalasopara.

Gupta was in telephonic contact with Singh to deliver the bag of charas received from a supplier Baliram alias Balli, living in Bhayander east, Thane district.

The seized contraband was found in eight taped packets sewn in cloth bags and then concealed in Singh’s backpack with the carrier’s knowledge.

The NCB said that further investigations into the antecedents of the arrested persons, the source and destination of the seized drugs and the supply chain are being probed.

The NCB also made it clear that the dual operation in Thane-Palghar on Tuesday was independent and had no connection with the ongoing drugs case probe into the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

Murder

A 29-year-old woman was strangled by her husband after she confronted him over his alleged extra marital affair in Delhi’s Paharganj. The woman was found in an unconscious state on Thursday morning with ligature marks on her neck. When she was rushed to the hospital she was declared brought dead.

Suspicion fell on the husband as the children of the deceased were with their grandparents and the husband was missing post midnight.

A photo of the deceased’s husband was taken from their house and the police began to trace the suspect.

The accused Sunny, an e-rickshaw driver, tried to flee in his vehicle. The police team started stopping e-rickshaw drivers in the vicinity and tried to identify the suspect through his photograph.

Meanwhile, a policeman saw a person who turned around his e-rickshaw and tried to escape from the spot where the team was checking the vehicles but the police team apprehended the suspect.

“During interrogation, the suspect confessed to having strangulated his wife with her chunni after having a heated altercation over the issue of his extra marital relation,” said Sanjay Bhatia, DCP Central Delhi.

The rescue operation was over but officials suspected that some more people might be trapped under the debris.

A team of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) carried out the rescue operation.

The building in Mira Malli Mohalla collapsed after the roof on the second floor caved in, NDRF Director General Satya Narayan Pradhan informed in a tweet.

Local legislator N.K. Sharma said the building was constructed in violation of laws.

“The Municipal Committee office is located just a stone’s throw away from the disaster spot. This indicates that the construction was undertaken in connivance of municipal officials,” he told the media at the spot.
