Mumbai – Indradev Pandey
Mumbai Crime Branch Officer of unit 10 of the Mumbai crime branch have seized 1000 bottles of chemical drug Oxytocin and have also arrested two men who were allegedly possessing and supplying the said drug at a cow shed.
Those accused have been identified as Naajeeb Khotal (37) and Anis Khande (44) and both are residents of Kalyan residents, said the police. Subsequently, the crime branch sleuths have also seized a total of 500 litres of the same drug in Kalyan and during the further course of investigation, more seizures are expected ahead.
According to the crime branch sources, Oxytocin which is a banned drug is used illegally in dairy farms and cow sheds so that lactating cows and buffaloes give milk in a greater quantity which in turn proves profitable for selling milk. However, the drug also leaves a negative impact on the health of animals and after consuming such dairy products, humans are also prone to fell ill.
“The movement of this drug is seen especially near stables and on Monday, one of our officers received an input which claimed that a vehicle stuffed with bottles of Oxytocin is going to come near an Andheri based stable to sell it so we prepared the teams which also included officers from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) department and local police from Powai police station. Once we intercepted the vehicle, we stopped it and based on the strong smell coming from inside we were convinced about the drug presence and after opening the boxes, we seized 1000 bottles filled with Oxytocin,” said a police officer.
Later, the Powai police registered a case under relevant sections of the law.
