New Delhi: Crime Branch of Delhi Police has arrested a woman for allegedly being involved in the trafficking of drugs after recovering 6.5-kg of crystal ephedrine, worth an estimated Rs 25 lakh, from her possession.
The arrested woman has been identified as Jenet Malsawkimi, who hails from Mizoram.
"We got information that a northeastern woman was to come yesterday to the DDA Market in Vishal Enclave and laid a trap and arrested her," said a senior police officer.
Police said that Malsawkimi and her Nigerian live-in partner, identified as one Oneka, resided in a rented accommodation at Rajouri Garden.
"She would supply drugs upon directions from Oneka, who is presently supposed to be in Nigeria. He is the mastermind behind this racket," the officer added.
Police recovered 6.5-kg of the drug from her possession with the haul estimated to be worth Rs 25 lakh on the international market.
According to police, Malsawkimi would send drugs, namely crystal ephedrine, via cargo services to African countries after concealing the same inside automobile spare parts.
The accused, who studied up to Class 10th in Mizoram, came into contact with Oneka two years back and started living with him.
Police said that Oneka would procure a shaft propeller of a Maruti car from the automobile market at Kashmere Gate and then carve out its main piston to create a cavity.
He would then put the drug in a polythene bag and place it in the cavity in the shaft propeller before handing the same to Malsawkimi to arrange for delivery through courier.
