In a significant drug bust, police have seized LSD and hybrid cannabis valued at Rs 43 lakh from an apartment in Surat. The drugs were reportedly ordered from Bangkok through the dark web by Partha Mandirwala, a resident of Adajan locality. Despite the raid, Mandirwala was not found at his residence.

The raid revealed 21.820 grams of hybrid ganja and nine LSD blotter papers, indicating a growing trend of using the dark web and social media to source drugs from abroad. The drugs were ordered and shipped via courier, an increasingly common method among peddlers targeting affluent youths.

The Special Operations Group, based on specific intelligence, carried out the raid and has registered a case under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act. Efforts to nab the accused are ongoing as authorities clamp down on this new modus operandi.
