A Thane district court has issued non-bailable warrants against alleged international drug-lord Vicky Goswami and his partner, former Bollywood actor Mamta Kulkarni in an ephedrine haul case.
The investigators claimed to have got “clinching evidence” against Goswami and Kulkarni and based on which they want to file a charge-sheet, but the duo are declared absconding since their names cropped up in the drug bust, said a senior police officer while speaking to The Times of India.
Special public prosecutor Shishir Hiray, appearing for the prosecution sought the warrant, and informed the court that they have ample evidence against the duo and their involvement in the drug racket as prime accused.
As per the police, ephedrine was being diverted from Avon Lifesciences to a Kenya-based drug cartel, allegedly headed by Goswami where it was used to make party-drug Methamphetamine.
The police have arrested more than 10 people in the case.
