Psychologist arrested by NCB for selling drug-induced brownies in South Mumbai.

 



On Monday, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) busted an ongoing drug business, which was supplying narcotic drugs-infused cakes and brownies to rev parties. 


Sameer Wankhede, the zonal director of NCB, based on a tip raided a bakery-cum-residence in Mazgaon (South Mumbai) on the 12th of July ( Monday). During the raid, a person who is said to be a professional psychologist also got arrested. NCB officials while searching the place found 10 kilograms of Hash-induced brownies, packed and ready to be delivered. They also found 50 grams of Opium and cash worth 1.17 lakhs, during the search


Sources said that the psychologist who got arrested was running the bakery-cum-drug lab and that person works with a reputed South-Mumbai-based hospital. The person is identified by the name of Rahmeen Charaniya, 25yrs old, and was in the business since his college days. After being interrogated, the accused said he got the idea from an OTT platform-based series based on drug trafficking. 


Further, during interrogation, it came up that Charaniya used to make deliveries himself and used to take orders through online platforms. Charaniya also gave the name of his supplier, Ramzan Shaikh (40yrs old), who also got caught by NCB officials in the Crawford market with 50 grams of Hash.


The Zonal Director of NCB also told about different categories of drug-based cakes which were being supplied by Charaniya namely; Rainbow Cake (a mixture of Hash, Charas, and weed with dough), Hash Brownies and Pot Brownies (infused with Marijuana). 


Although this is not the first operation where NCB busted a drug-based bakery module. A similar module was busted a month ago in Western Mumbai, but the seizure was 10 percent of the current seizure.
