Netherlander Could Be Biggest Catch Yet In Drugs Case
Hyderabad: In what could be a major breakthrough in the infamous drugs case, police have taken into custody Mike Kamminga, a national of the Netherlands, on Tuesday midnight.
A supplier of psychotropic drugs, Mike has already visited India four times. He is holding a valid visa for the country till 2018.
Announcing the custody of the Netherlander, Enforcement Director Akun Sabharwal disclosed on Wednesday that Mike largely masterminded drug supply to the IT sector, mainly to software engineers and senior officials, and employees of other multinational corporations.
Approximately, 1,500 software engineers were allegedly buying drugs supplied by Mike, who is being produced before the court.
The Netherlander is the next major catch after Calvin Mascarenhas, whose revelations under interrogation have led to issue of summons against film celebrities.
A score of others too have been arrested but they mainly acted as suppliers.
Meanwhile, there was another arrest on Wednesday afternoon with an accused being brought to the Excise Office with his face covered. Sources believe he is the manager of a leading hero and has widespread links within the film industry. His name or either that of the hero has not come out yet. Ronnie, Kajal Aggarwal’s manager, was arrested on Tuesday.
