Drugs worth Rs 1,476 crore were seized from a truck carrying imported oranges in Mumbai, media reports said.

The truck was intercepted by the Directorate General of Revenue Intelligence.

Officials found 198 kg of high purity crystal methamphetamine and 9 kg cocaine concealed in cartons of Valencia oranges.

"It was found that large quantity of drugs were concealed in the cartons carrying Valencia oranges. The importer of the goods has been nabbed and is being interrogated. Further probe is underway," DRI said in a statement.

On Friday, NCB had prevented an attempt in Mumbai to bring "black cocaine" into India with a seizure of cocaine valued at Rs 1 crore.

This was the first seizure of black cocaine in India as this type of cocaine is not revealed in scans and sniffer dogs cannot detect it.
