DRI nab drone smuggling racket

 

Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) has busted an international racket involving smugglers from Pakistan, China, Myanmar and India to import high-end drones, remotely-piloted aircraft, into the country through the north-eastern border.

The shipment of drones and other related items, worth 1 crore rupees, was intercepted and seized by the DRI in March. However, the Ahmedabad-based mastermind, whose identity was not revealed, was arrested yesterday.

A release by the DRI in Ahmedabad said the drones were smuggled into India from China through Myanmar. It was also revealed that some Pakistan-based smugglers and their firms were also involved in the entire racket.
