A 34-year-old man has been arrested in west Delhi’s Moti Nagar for drug trafficking. Police have recovered 1.5 kg of heroin worth Rs 1.5 crore in the international market.

Om Prakash, a resident of Om Vihar Phase-II in Uttam Nagar, was involved in sale and supply of heroin since 2002.

He has revealed that he used to procure heroin from a man named Mohan in Neemuch district of Madhya Pradesh.

Ravindra Yadav, additional commissioner of police (crime and railways), said Om was held after an information was received by crime branch on Wednesday.

“We were informed that Om would be coming near Moti Nagar Metro station to deliver a consignment of heroin to someone,” Yadav added.

A trap was laid around Moti Nagar Metro station and Om was apprehended.
“We recovered 1.5 kilo of heroin from his possession following which a case was filed with crime branch police station,” Yadav said.

During interrogation, Om told police that his younger brother Yogesh is also indulging in drug trafficking and was arrested in 2008.

Their father is a fruit seller who started selling illicit liquor due to insufficient income.
They too joined their father in bootlegging and Om was earlier arrested for bootlegging by Desh Bandhu Gupta Road police station.

“Om started sale and supply of heroin in 2002. After his marriage, he left drug trafficking and started mobile phone repairing, but switched to drug trafficking after his wife’s death in 2009,” Yadav added.
