Kolkata: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Sunday night seized a huge quantity of high grade Malana hasish and drugs such as LSD and Ecstasy during raids in Kolkata. Three people, including the disc jockey of a posh night club, were arrested.

Two Kolkata residents named Henry Lawrence Manna and Robert Dixon were arrested from outside a departmental store near Sealdah railway station on Sunday. Two kgs of hashish was seized from them, an NCB official said. “Another 450 grams was seized from Dixon’s house in Ballygunge. The total worth of the seized drug is about Rs 15 lakh in the illegal trading market,” he added.

Nikhil Lakhwani, the arrested DJ, works at a moderately new but popular night club in central Kolkata. The two others have been identified as Henry Lawrence Manna and Roberts Dixon. All of them allegedly supply drugs to “high-profile” customers, said Srivastava.
