New Delhi:

The NCB said on Sunday it had arrested a Hyderabad-based man and seized 3.71 crore rupees as he claimed to have uncovered an illegal internet pharmacy which was shipping narcotics to the United States and other countries.

The pharmacy, identified by the Federal Narcotics Enforcement Agency as JR Infinity Pvt. Ltd., was located in Domalguda in the capital city of Telangana.

Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) Hyderabad sub-area officials raided the location a few days ago and arrested the unidentified ‘pivot’ who allegedly ran the illegal pharmacy.

He said that Rs 3.71 crore cash, identified as the proceeds of drug trafficking, a number of laptops, mobile phones and other electronic gadgets which were used to operate the “illegal internet pharmacy” have been seized.

“JR Infinity employees used to contact customers in the United States and other countries via email and VoIP (voice over Internet Protocol) calls and offer various pharmaceutical drugs, including those covered by the narcotics and mind-altering substances (NDPS) law, for recreational purposes. “Once the customers agreed on the product and price, the employees collected the customer details like name, shipping address, email id, etc. and shared the payment links with them,” NCB Deputy Director General (Operations) Sanjay Kumar Singh said in a statement. .

The officer said customers were offered multiple payment methods “like account transfer, credit card, PayPal, bitcoins, etc.” Upon confirmation of payment by the customer, JR infinity had a habit of diverting and illicitly shipping pharmaceutical drugs to customers in the United States and other countries, he said.

The agency found that the arrested defendant had “conducted more than a thousand diversions and illicit drug shipments from India to the United States and also within the United States.” Psychotropic tablets trafficked included Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Alprazolam, Diazepam, Lorazepam, Clonazepam, Zolpidem, Tramadol, etc. PTI NES DV DV
