India to ISIS: 50 Million Worth drugs transported
The Italian police forces seized a shipment, reported to consist of drugs worth 50 Million Euros (374.88 crores) passing through the Gioia Tauro port. These drugs were intended to be sold by ISIS in Libya to raise funds for carrying out terror activities.This incident comes as a serious blow to the ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria).
The police discovered 24 millionTramadol tablets in the shipment that is heading to Libya from India. The painkiller (tramadol) is often known as ‘fighter drug’, given its ability to reduce fatigue and dull pain. To experience the benefits of tramadol, a dosage of 4 to 5 tablets in the day should be taken.
‘This wouldn’t have been possible without the help of Ndrangheta (a criminal mafia group in Italy). We have identified that few Ndrangheta families are involved in trade with these terror and extremist organizations. The port of Gioia Tauro is no more a safe haven for these criminal and terror groups,’ quoted an Italian police official.
The drug ‘Tramadol’ is known to be produced very cheaply in India and Pakistan. The drug has devastated Nigeria and most part of Africa and is learned to be used by the Terrorist group Boko Haram in Nigeria.
