The National Jaundice Agency conducted a raid against an illegal drug trafficking gang in Chengalpattu, Tamil Nadu. This search operation by NIA is related to illegal drug and arms trade in India and Sri Lanka. News agency ANI quoted the NIA as saying, “A raid was conducted in Chengalpattu district of Tamil Nadu in connection with illegal drug and arms trade in India and Sri Lanka.

The matter came to light on March 18 last year when the Indian Coast Guard intercepted a Sri Lankan fishing boat ‘Ravihansi’ in Indian territory near Minikai Island, Lakshadweep, and it was revealed that the boat was carrying a large quantity of prohibited items. 300.323 kg of heroin and five assault rifles and one thousand 9 mm.

Subsequently, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) of Kochi conducted an investigation and registered an FIR and subsequently filed a chargesheet against the Sri Lankan nationals and others. According to Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) data, in the last five years, heroin seizures in India have increased from 2,146 kg in 2017 to 7,282 kg in 2021, an increase of almost 300%.

Based on the case registered by the NIA, the Enforcement Directorate initiated a money laundering investigation and conducted an investigation under the Money Laundering Act.
