Drugs stashed in cat food enter India from some African and European countries
Three friends from Chembur, who were arrested in December last year on charges of growing marijuana in a home, were allegedly sent different kinds of drugs stashed in animal feed from some African and European countries as well as Australia. Sandwiched among cat, fish and dog food, the drugs went undetected at the airport and were delivered to them via India Post. The Mumbai crime branch said Phoenix Rajaiya, a BTech graduate, and Nikhil Sharma, an engineering college dropout, contacted suppliers of marijuana seeds, LSD and ecstasy pills on the dark net, paid for the drugs in Bitcoins, and set up a tiny weed farm at a home of a friend, Jitesh Koli, in a chawl. They allegedly peddle the drugs in the city.
