International drug baron Vicky Goswami, who also happens to be yesteryear actress Mamata Kulkarni’s husband, was arrested by the United States (US) Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) from Kenya on Sunday. Ibrahim and Baktash Akasha, sons of a slain drug baron, and Gulam Hussein, a Pakistani national, were also arrested by the DEA officials and all four were brought to the US where they are wanted for drug trafficking.

According to a report by India Today, Goswami and Kulkarni are both wanted in a drug haul case by Thane Police, who are now trying to get Goswami back to India to strengthen their case.

We will speak to Indian authorities to get in touch with US Counterpart and help Goswami’s extradition in India. There has been a healthy information sharing between Thane police and DEA in this case.

Vicky Goswami, the son of a police officer from Gujarat, began his criminal career as a bootlegger in the 80s. Over the last two decades, he has expanded his network to Dubai and Africa.
