Mumbai: The NCB arrested a well-known hairstylist, who is also the head of the make-up department at a leading Bollywood production house, along with another person in possession of 16 packets of cocaine weighing 17.6 grams.
NCB officials arrested Suraj Godambe who was receiving the stuff from one Lalchanda Yadav, an auto driver working for a Nigerian drug cartel operating in Mumbai. “The two accused persons were arrested near Meera Tower in Oshiwara, Andheri while the drug was found in their possession.
