Mum­bai: An al­leged king­pin who sup­plies party drugs–meow meow or mephedrone–to nar­cotic drug ped­dlers in the west­ern sub­urbs was ar­rested in Am­boli on Sun­day. An of­fi­cial from Am­boli po­lice sta­tion said that the ac­cused, Im­ran An­sari (32), was caught while hand­ing over 1kg of the meow meow worth Rs 40 lakh to a drug ped­dler Afzal An­sari (38) on Veera De­sai Road in And­heri (west). The po­lice said that their probe has re­vealed that Im­ran is the main sup­plier and op­er­ates from Ban­dra.

This is the sec­ond time in the last 12 months that the po­lice have seized such a bulky con­sign­ment of drugs from And­heri. “Im­ran’s ar­rest is quite sig­nif­i­cant as he is said to be among the big­gest drug deal­ers in the west­ern sub­urbs, es­pe­cially Ban­dra,” said po­lice in­spec­tor Daya Nayak.

Based on their in­for­ma­tion, ad­di­tional com­mis­sioner of po­lice Manoj Sharma and his team laid a trap near Dev Prestji Apart­ment in And­heri (west) and nabbed the two and con­fis­cated a bike. “We seized the drugs from them,” said se­nior in­spec­tor of Am­boli po­lice sta­tion Bharat Gaik­wad.

The po­lice also seized a weigh­ing scale and sa­chets in which 10gm of the drug was wrapped and sold to users.
