David Blessing, a 30-year-old Nigerian lady has been arrested by the Kolkata unit of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in Kolkata, India, for concealing LSD blots and cocaine in her vagina.
This came ten days after five Chinese nationals were arrested, with almost 200kg of a banned party drug from a railway station in the city. Preliminary investigation, revealed that Blessing who was intercepted the moment she landed in Kolkata from Mumbai at Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport at around 9.20 PM on Monday, has been staying in Mumbai for the last two years on business visa and the consignment seized from her possession was meant for a person in Kolkata.
NCB Kolkata Zonal Head Dilip Kumar Srivastava who spoke to News 18 said;
We had prior information about the lady and accordingly planned our arrest operation. Last night our officers got a lead that she was arriving from Mumbai-Kolkata Jet Airways flight. We rushed there and intercepted her.
During the search, our lady officers found only 20 LSD blots from her bag. But later she took out 12 grams of Cocaine from her private parts. She was having pain in her lower abdomen and revealed that more contraband substances were concealed inside her vagina. We immediately rushed her to a nearby hospital where her trans-vaginal USG report confirmed our hunch.
“We have a few more leads and we will interrogate her once she will be released from the hospital. It seems that she is a part of international drug racket,” Srivastava said.
Bureau officials said Blessing has no record of past crime.
“But now we will get everything verified including whether her passport is genuine,” said an officer.
Srivastava said they have noticed a shift in the style of operation of operators compared to earlier decades. According to him, students from middle-class educated families and nightclub jockeys seem to be replacing traditional peddlers, turning the supply chain bigger and more sophisticated.
