In a second major haul in a month, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has arrested a Kenyan national from Ahmedabad railway station with cocaine and amphetamine valued at around Rs 6 crore, an official said on Thursday.

Acting on a tip off, the NCB and Railway Protection Force (RPF) personnel searched the Delhi-Mumbai Garib Rath Express train at Kalupur Railway Station and nabbed 33-year-old John William Best on Wednesday.

NCB Zonal Director Hari Om Gandhi said: “We found 587 gm cocaine and 700 gm amphetamine hidden in footwear and headphone boxes.”

During preliminary questioning, John said he had received the contraband from a Delhi-based supplier and was headed to Mumbai for sending them further to New Zealand.

On June 10, the NCB had arrested a Nigerian national with amphetamine, ecstasy tablets and cocaine valued at Rs 3.5 crore from Vadodara railway station.
