4,23 kg of heroin worth Rs 63,4 million have been seized by police officers at the airport on Monday, September 21.
The heroin was brought by a Mauritian who was thus arrested. He later appeared in the court of Mahebourg.
The drug was hidden deep into the double bottom of two suitcases. It was only detected by a drug-sniffing dog. The Anti-Drug and Smuggling Unit was then informed of the case. An investigation is ongoing.
