Gujarat drug bust: Police foil meth factory plan near Surat, 1 accused operated from jail


The Gujarat police have busted a drug racket and nabbed four accused, one of them identified as Sunil Kaushik Sharma who is currently lodged in the Lajpore Central Jail in Surat, a senior police official said on Thursday.


The police operation thwarted their elaborate plan to smuggle raw materials from Rajasthan and establish a manufacturing factory for narcotic drugs in the outskirts of Surat.

According to Surat police, the accused were involved in the illicit production of synthetic drugs, particularly methamphetamine, commonly known as ‘MD’.

“We have seized about 10.5kg of processed raw material from Rajasthan required to make MD drugs. It required two more steps to make the drug. This is enough to make 8.5-9 kg of MD, estimated at around ₹8-9 crore in the illegal market. All four accused, including the one in Lajpore jail, were previously associated with NDPS (Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances) activities. We came to know about Sunil Sharma’s involvement after the Rajasthan operation,” said Sharad Singhal, Joint Commissioner of Police, Surat.
