500 kg of paan masala seized from Gujarat Mail in Mumbai | Mumbai News


MUMBAI: More than 500 kg of paan masala was found unclaimed in a coach of the Gujarat Mail at Mumbai Central Terminus on Wednesday. The value of the consignment is nearly Rs 15 lakh. The Mumbai Central GRP is investigating about the person who sent the banned consignment. An FIR has been registered under provisions of the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006.
The Gujarat Mail left from Ahmedabad on Tuesday night and reached Mumbai Central Terminus on Wednesday morning. Parcels were offloaded from the SLR coach of the train. All parcels except 11 sacks were claimed. The parcel staff and Railway Protection Force found it suspicious that the sacks were emitting a strong odour. The sacks were seized and opened. Around 540 kg of paan masala was found. The GRP was then intimated for further action.
“No arrest has been made so far. We will start checking CCTV footage of stations right from Ahmedabad,” said a police officer.
