The five Chinese men arrested with contraband drugs worth Rs. 40 crore this past week were frequent visitors to India and efforts are on to find out the scheduled destination of the seized drugs, a CID official said.

The five Chinese nationals were arrested from outside Kolkata, a terminal railway station in the city, after the GRP seized 197 kg amphetamine tablets, stated to be an expensive party drug, from them. The drugs were found in silver plastic packets inside their bags and they offered huge bribe to the GRP personnel to release them, the senior officer added.

“They have been frequent visitors to India. They had travelled to New Delhi, Mumbai and various other cities since 2016,” the officer said.
