A Zambian air traveler was arrested on Saturday at the international airport in the national capital for allegedly trying to smuggle out drugs.
The incident happened last night when a CISF check squad suspected the movement of the Zambian identified as Phiri Elijah (29) at the terminal 3 of the IGIA.
He was arrested just before he was about to board a flight to Dubai.
During checking, the security officials recovered 10-kg of narcotic drug called Methaqualon from his baggage.
The estimated value of the drug is about Rs. one crore in the black market.
The passenger was handed over to the Customs officials for further legal action, a CISF official said.
