Ephedrine seized from airport

TRICHY: Air intelligence wing at the Trichy airport on Wednesday, seized 4.8 kg of ephedrine, an odourless party drug, concealed amid grocery packets in the luggage of a woman who was deported from Malaysia last week. On March 19, the woman, Rukmini, flew to Kuala Lumpur on an Air Asia flight on a visit visa but was not allowed into Malaysia for "some technical reason." She was kept in Malaysian immigration custody for a couple of days and then sent back to India. Rukmini landed in Trichy on March 21 sans her baggage which ultimately landed in another flight on Wednesday morning. To the question of how the contraband, whose international value would be about Rs 8 crore, was not initially detected by the Trichy customs on the day of Rukmini's departure, senior superintendent (air intelligence) Ernest Ravi said, "It is possible that the contraband concealed within edible flour packets, was not easily detected." But the question remained as to how the strict Malaysian immigration also did not detect the drug before it was sent back to Trichy. When Rukmini was deported to Trichy, she might not have known that her baggage was not travelling with her, as she made a complaint with the airline about the missing baggage, an immigration officer said. Rukmini told officials at the Trichy airport that she was deported as her sponsor in Malaysia did not come to receive her. She also claimed that she was a former national weight-lifting champion, hailing from Sivaganga district.

Another superintendent of air intelligence wing, J Raja told TOI that Rukmini, a poor and desperate woman, might or might not have known about the contraband inside her baggage. She told the officials that she wanted to work in a restaurant in Malaysia and the sponsors conditioned her to carry the parcel as a quid pro quo. It was her third visit to Malaysia on a visit visa, she added. After the contraband baggage was offloaded on Wednesday, an unsuspecting Rukmini was informed. When she came to receive her baggage, she was detained. On the basis of information provided by her, one Rahman from Chennai was arrested by the air intelligence officials. Immigration sleuths are waiting for one more accomplice who would perhaps spill the beans about the machinations of the illegal network, said Raja. Interestingly, the first tip off about the hidden ephedrine in Rukmini's baggage was given by a mysterious Malaysian to the Sivaganga SP office and the Trichy air intelligence wing was alerted. Rukmini along with her accomplice Rahman would be produced before the magistrate on Thursday.

13 kg ephedrine seized from three passengers at airport

Customs officials seized 13.4 kg of ephedrine, a controlled narcotic substance, from three air passengers, including two women at the airport here on Friday.

The accused - Mohamed Kuviyan of Mimisal in Pudukottai district, Lakshmi (43) and Malarvizhi (38) both from Chennai - came to the airport to board an Air Asia flight to Kuala Lumpur with the contraband when they were caught.

Addressing the media here, Additional Commissioner of Customs, Tiruchi, G.P. Chandolia, said custom officials who were keeping surveillance at the airport examined the bags of the three travellers which contained clothes.

During further examination, the officials found ephedrine concealed in the bottom of the three bags.

The bottom portion of the bags was made of plywood, he said adding that the value of the seized substance was Rs.13.46 lakh in Indian market.

The narcotic substance was found in different quantities inside the bags of the three persons who were later arrested under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985.

Mr. Chandolia said this was the first time that the trio were trying to fly to a foreign country from Tiruchi airport. While the two women were housewives, the other person was a labourer.

Stating that the arrested persons were ‘carriers', Mr. Chandolia said the trio had confessed to the customs officials that the narcotic substance was given to them by a person in Tiruchi. Investigations were on to find out the person who had supplied the narcotic substance.

He said ephedrine, a party drug white in colour, was covered under the NDPS Act, 1985. The customs officials seized 5.34 kg of ephedrine from three persons at the Tiruchi airport last year. Over 11 kg of ketamine was seized from a Malaysian national at the airport here last year.

A few days ago, the customs officials seized 59 mobile phones that were concealed inside six television sets at the airport. The phones were seized from eight air passengers.

Fog may hamper flights over Chennai - airlines could also look at Tiruchy and Coimbatore as alternative destinations.

“Winter is very dry this year except for early morning chill. But then climatologically, the city has been experiencing less than 500 metres visibility for four days in March,” said Dr R. Suresh, director-in-charge, aerodrome meteorological office in Chennai.

A study based on the past 30 years has revealed that Chennai airport witnesses less than 500 metres visibility for six days in February and four days in March. “We expect foggy conditions for about five days in March this year,” added Dr Suresh.

This is bound to affect early morning flights as a minimum of 550 metres visibility is required to operate the runway in Chennai.

Though the authorities may divert flights to Bengaluru and Hyderabad, airport director E.P.

Hareendranathan said airlines could also look at Tiruchy and Coimbatore as alternative destinations.

“We have to look at availability of air traffic controllers and parking space before directing flights to smaller international airports in the state.

Dinakaran newspaper keeps on finding fault on present government where as last five years praising everything done by MK and co.

Dinakaran intention to create panic among the residents of those effected areas and like to project as big issue and whatever developmental works taken by this government to be doomed.

How the idiotic reporter taken the idea of extending the runway in South- North direction... No reported has idea, how the present runway aligned.

Water bodies won't get effected as the report prescribed, only bridge they are going to construct and there won't have any issue of water flow.

Dinakaran always against Trichy developments... let's don't give much important to this toilet paper....especially when AIADMK in power dmk and dinakaran like to stop all the important development works by creating panic


Yes you are right Dinakaran is always biased, but what is the status of the problem between the locals and the govenment ?
