So far, one person has been arrested in this case.

Heroin Caught by DRI at Port in Mumbai

Mumbai unit of DRI has arrested 62-year-old businessman Jayesh Shanghvi of Navi Mumbai after raiding the port. Shanghvi is alleged to have brought heroin from Iran to Mumbai by hiding it in a consignment of groundnut oil. A DRI official said that based on intelligence, a container from Iran was caught in Nhava Sheva, Navi Mumbai, and heroin has been recovered in its search.

The businessman had given an order of 10 thousand per consignment to the import company.


The DRI official said that Sandeep Thakkar of Vaibhav Enterprises imported this container. The DRI team has also questioned him. Sandeep Thakkar has told the officials that Sanghvi had offered him Rs 10,000 per consignment to import goods from Iran at his firm’s IEC. He had been doing business with Sanghvi for 15 years, so he trusted him.

Sent in custody till October 11

DRI has arrested Shanghvi and registered a case against him under NDPS Act. He was produced before the Metropolitan Magistrate Court on Thursday. The court has sent him to DRI custody till October 11.

DRI fears to be a big syndicate

The DRI has told the court in this case that it suspects that Sanghvi is part of a syndicate, and there is a need to interrogate Sanghvi to know the details of all the people involved. The DRI suspects that such consignments may have been smuggled in the past as well. The DRI had seized 293 kg of heroin from the Mumbai port and arrested Prabhjit Singh, owner of Sandhu Exports Punjab.
