Mumbai: 840 Bottles Of Maxcoff Cough Syrup Seized; Four Held

Mumbai  (PTI) Mumbai police’s Anti Narcotic Cell (ANC) seized banned cough syrup worth Rs 5.88 lakh and arrested four persons in this connection, an official said on Thursday.

The medication Maxcoff contains codeine phosphate, which is an opium derivative and is often abused by people who are dependent on drugs, the official said.

Acting on intelligence inputs, ANC officials on February 28 intercepted a local resident at Gaikwad Nagar in Deonar and recovered a few bottles of the cough syrup packed in seven cartoons from him, he said.

His questioning led the ANC to three more Deonar residents and a collective seizure of 840 bottles worth Rs 5.88 lakh, the official said, adding that all four have been booked in drug-related cases in the past.

The arrested persons are Sohrab Mohd Safi Khan, Daud Fajluddin Tambe, Shahnawaj Abrar Khan and Manohar Ranaram Mali.

A case has been registered under Section 22 and 29 of NDPS Act, 1985
