The Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) arrested a Tanzanian woman at the Mumbai international airport for carrying 810 grams of cocaine, most of which was concealed in capsules found inside her stomach, an official said on Tuesday.
The value of the seizure is estimated at Rs 8 crore in the illicit market, according to the official.
The woman had consumed at least 65 capsules, each containing 10 grams of cocaine. She also carried additional 160 grams of cocaine in another capsule along with her, he added.
The Maharashtra government will take appropriate action after studying the Bombay High Court order cancelling the Common Entrance Test (CET) for class 11 admissions, state School Education Minister Varsha Gaikwad said on Tuesday.
The high court has cancelled the CET observing it was a case of "gross injustice" and would be a threat to the lives of students amid the COVID-19 pandemic. A division bench of Justices R D Dhanuka and R I Chagla also directed the state government to start the admission of students for class 11 by considering their class 10 marks and internal assessments and complete the admission process within six weeks.
