Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) – an anti-drug agency of Nepal Police – has arrested two foreigners, including a Thai national, with 1.9 kg cocaine worth around Rs 40 million.
The alleged associates of the transnational drug racket nabbed from a Thamel-based hotel are Bolivian national Freddy Mamani India with passport number 9051567 and Thai national Khuanjai Khanarat with passport number AA9155823.
NCB in-charge DIG Thule Rai informed that undercover cops tracked the Bolivian man to the hotel and arrested the two while they were handing over and receiving a suitcase containing the drug.
"The destination of the cocaine was Thailand," he said, adding that the Thai woman had been allegedly tasked by her boyfriend of Sierra Leone – currently living in Bangkok – with the responsibility of receiving the suitcase from the Bolivian and taking it home.
The Bolivian man and the Thai woman had arrived in Kathmandu on January 12 and January 17 respectively and met at the hotel, according to NCB. "They did not know each other and they were provided with special identity by their bosses."
