Kolkata, July 10 (IANS) The Narcotics Control Bureau's (NCB) Kolkata unit arrested a Nigerian woman here for allegedly trying to smuggle drugs by concealing them in her private parts, a senior officer said on Tuesday.
"David Blessing (30), a Nigerian national has been arrested from Kolkata's Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International airport on Monday evening with 20 LSD blots from her bag. The accused later took out 12 grams of cocaine concealed in her private body part," NCB Kolkata unit Zonal Director Dilip Kumar Srivastava said in a statement.
According to Srivastava, the woman came to Kolkata from Mumbai in a Jet Airways flight on Monday night and was immediately intercepted at the airport.
"During further interrogation, she revealed that more contraband substances were concealed inside her lower abdomen which she is unable to take out on her own," the officer said.
"She was rushed to a local hospital for an X-Ray of her lower abdomen and a trans-vaginal ultrasonography. The reports showed some concealment in her uterus," he revealed.
The incident comes after five Chinese nationals were arrested here for carrying 200 kg of amphetamine worth Rs 40 crore.
