Chandigarh: A Nigerian was on Thursday arrested in
Panipat while he was allegedly trying to smuggle nearly 3 kg
heroin into the national capital.

26-year-old Odian Jewel was travelling in a Delhi-bound
bus from here when he was apprehended, Station House Officer
Naresh Ahlawat said.

During a brief halt at the Panipat stand, Jewel alighted
from the bus. Police then conducted a regular search operation
and found the heroin packets tied to his legs with some tape
material, he said.

The Nigerian was later produced before a Panipat Court
which remanded him to three-days in police custody.
