Woman held on drug peddling charges; 105 gms cocaine seized

A 30-year-old woman, hailing from Bengaluru, has been arrested here on charges of drug peddling and 105 grams of cocaine seized from her possession, officials said Wednesday.

Earlier, 100 grams cocaine was seized from a Nigerian national in the city on September 1.

The woman was nabbed near the entrance of the central bus-stand when she was waiting to sell the drugs, prohibition and excise officials said.

A release said the woman procured the cocaine from some African national in Bengaluru to sell it in Hyderabad. During questioning she admitted to having visited Hyderabad thrice earlier and returning to Bengaluru, it said.
