The Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) have reportedly seized two containers of heroin worth Rs 9,000 crore from Mundra Port in Gujarat’s Kutch on September 15. The incident came to light on Sunday.

According to reports, the contraband was reportedly imported from Afghanistan. It was found that the consignment, which came under the guise of talcum powder, was going to Ashi Trading Firm, a Vijayawada-based company in Andhra Pradesh. As per reports, Ashi Trading Firm has its roots extended from Kakinada to Vijayawada and Chennai.

The exporting firm has been identified as Hassan Hussain Ltd., based in Kandahar, Afghanistan. The operation of DRI and Customs has been going on for the past five days. The two containers, which were seized by the officials, had 2,988.22 kilograms of the banned substance, Heroin.

Ashi Trading Company was registered on August 18 last year with a street address in Vijayawada. The company was established under the name of Durga Poorna Vaishali Govindaraju. It is being set up for the wholesale trade of rice, fruits and vegetables. The company’s contact number is linked to a person by name Sudhakar, who also owns Ashi Solar Systems in Chennai. He is a resident of Kakinada and is currently absconding.

On the other hand, four days ago, DRI officials contacted the GST staff regarding Ashi Trading Company in Vijayawada.
