India police extract 106 cocaine capsules from woman’s stomach

The 25-year-old foreign national was arrested at the international airport in the capital Delhi on 14 May after a tip-off, police said.

She is reported to have spent the past week at a hospital where she was given laxatives to recover the cocaine.

The drugs are estimated to be worth 50 million rupees ($734, 160; £546,568).

Police believe the woman ingested the capsules in Sau Paulo, Brazil, and was given instructions to deliver them to a Nigerian national in Delhi.

Officials from the narcotics department told the Hindustan Times newspaper that this was “the highest number of capsules of cocaine” that they had ever extracted from a person.

They added that what they have seized is high quality cocaine from Colombia, unlike the cheaper “crack” that is usually recovered in such cases.
