November 03, 2012 14:58 IST
Two persons were arrested at the Hyderabad international airport late on Friday night after 10 kg of Mandrix drug was allegedly found in their possession. The drug is estimated to be worth Rs 3 crore in the international market.

The duo, identified as Avinash and Rocky, were taken into custody by customs officials after they were found carrying the drug in their baggage during a check-in when they arrived to board a Malaysian airline flight to Kuala Lumpur.

A senior customs official said they have sent the seized substance for examination to the forensic lab to determine the type of the drug.
