71-year-old South African and his Nigerian associate reportedly held in drug racket in India


71-year-old South African and his Nigerian associate reportedly held in drug racket in India

Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has made this year's first seizure of Methaqualone aka Quaaludes from a 71-year-old South African national and his associate. The agency seized 14kg of the drug from the arrested duo.


NCB had zeroed down upon the septuagenarian during his stay in a Delhi hotel and nabbed him at the airport when he was to fly out of India. The accused has smuggled drugs six times in the past.

On April 10, Herbst and a Nigerian national named Martin were intercepted at the domestic airport. When the sleuths searched his luggage, they found Methaqualone wrapped in polythene and carbon paper concealed between T-shirts.

During interrogation, Herbst revealed that he had come to India 8 times and ferried drugs in six of those trips. He works for a Nigerian drug cartel operating between India and South Africa.

Martin told the cops that he has been supplying the drug for several years. He has been staying in India since 2007. His passport and visa have expired.
