Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Over 2kg MD drugs worth Rs 2 crore were already supplied to the city by the ex-air-hostess drug smuggler arrested on Saturday from Teen Imli. She used to carry out her dealings in different city hotels, said police officials on Monday after interrogating the woman.
Additional DCP Guruprasad Parashar said that Mansi used to visit Indore and supply the drugs to her clients in different city hotels. “She admitted that she had smuggled over 2 kg of drugs in the city on five trips to Indore in the past few months. However, the authenticity of her statements will be checked to ensure that she isn’t bluffing the police,” said Parashar. He added that Mansi had revealed a few names of hotels, as well as a few names of her clients, the veracity of which would be checked by the police and action taken accordingly.
Police officials also said that the police had activated their sources to reach the people involved in this drug smuggling racket. The police will also keep an eye on pubs and clubs in the city to ensure than no rave party should happen in the city in which youngsters could fall prey to drug addiction, the police officials said.

Harmful effects of MDMA
A person may experience the intoxicating effects of MDMA within 45 minutes or so after taking a single dose. Those effects include an enhanced sense of well-being, increased extroversion, emotional warmth, empathy toward others and a willingness to discuss emotionally charged memories. In addition, people report enhanced sensory perception as a hallmark of the MDMA experience. MDMA can also produce other adverse health effects, including involuntary jaw clenching, a lack of appetite, mild detachment from oneself (depersonalisation), illogical or disorganised thoughts, restless legs, nausea, hot flashes or chills, headache, sweating and muscle or joint stiffness. The effects last 3 to 6 hours, but people who take a moderate amount may experience withdrawal-type side-effects for a week after.
Confusion, irritability, anxiety & depression
Impulsiveness & aggression
Decreased interest in sex
Memory & attention problems
These effects may be due to MDMA alone, or to the combination of MDMA use with other drugs
