One Bolero Pickup having a Punjab registration number used for trafficking the narcotic drugs has also been seized. This syndicate has sold over 45 kg of ‘Malana Cream’ worth over Rs. 28 crores in Delhi/NCR and UP in the last three months.
In the second week of November 2022, information was received by the Special Cell that members of a drug cartel based in Kullu, Himachal Pradesh are supplying huge quantities of the narcotic drug “Malana Cream” to drug traffickers of Delhi/NCR and UP for rave parties.
Acting upon this information, a team under the supervision of Sh. Lalit Mohan Negi and Sh. Hridaya Bhushan, ACP/Special Cell/NDR was formed.
