2 Kyrgyz Nationals Held With Medicines Worth Rs 25 Lakh At Delhi Airport

New Delhi: Two Kyrgyzstan nationals carrying anti-epileptic Reagapen 300 mg Capsules worth about Rs 25 lakh were apprehended by CISF personnel at the Delhi airport on Monday, officials said.

The duo were intercepted by the security personnel around noon at terminal 3 of the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport after their movement was found to be suspicious, a Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) officer said.

Five large trolley bags stuffed with a huge quantity of Regapen 300 mg capsules were recovered from the two passengers, who are Kyrgyzstan nationals, he said.

They were bound for Almaty onboard an Air Astana plane scheduled to depart from the IGI airport at 3 pm. Regapen is an anti-epileptic drug and anti-narcotics officials say it is also abused as a psychotropic substance.

“As the passengers could not produce a valid authorisation for carrying such a huge quantity of medicines, they were offloaded from the plane and handed over to customs officials,” the officer said.

The CISF provides a counter-terrorist and counter-sabotage cover to the Delhi airport.
