Congress for SC monitored probe in Gujarat drug haul

New Delhi: The Congress party on September 22, 2021, demanded a Supreme Court-monitored probe into the recent drug seizure in Gujarat’s Mundra Port.


It’s notable that the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) has seized 2,988.21 kg heroin worth crores of rupees from two containers at the port, which is being operated by Adani Group.


Addressing a press conference at party headquarters, Congress general secretary Randeep Singh Surjewala said,” Where did 25,000 kg heroin drugs worth Rs 17500 crore go? Narcotics Control Bureau, DRI, ED, CBI, IB, are they sleeping. Or is this not a direct conspiracy to push the youth of the country into drugs?”


“Is this not playing with national security, because all these drugs are linked to the Taliban and Afghanistan? Why was the Adani Mundra port not investigated? Have the Prime Minister and the government not failed in the security of the country? Shouldn’t the entire matter be probed by the commission of a sitting judge of the Supreme Court?” asked Surjewala. (PW News)
