The Narcotics Control Bureau has seized 3.98 kg of heroin worth Rs 24 crore from a South African national at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport in Mumbai, an agency official said today.

Acting on a specific information, a team of the Narcotics Control Bureau on Tuesday detained the person, who had come from Johannesburg and was carrying a red trolley bag, he said.

During a search, they found a cavity in his bag where four packets of heroin, weighing 3.98 kg, were kept hidden, the NCB said in a statement.

In 2021, the anti-drug probe agency had apprehended a woman from South Africa with 3.9 kg of heroin at the airport in Mumbai, the official said.
