Ahmedabad, November 30
The Gujarat Anti-Terrorist Squad has raided a manufacturing unit on the outskirts of Vadodara city and seized a huge cache of the banned MD drug worth around Rs 500 crore, an ATS official said on Wednesday.
During the raid at the small factory-cum-godown near Vadodara on Tuesday night, the ATS apprehended five people from the spot, he said.
A preliminary investigation revealed the accused were making the MD drug, a narcotic substance, in the guise of manufacturing chemicals legally, the official said.
The operation is still on to bust the entire network, he said without giving more details.
In August, the ATS had seized more than 200 kilograms of party drug mephedrone worth nearly Rs 1,000 crore from a warehouse near Vadodara city, officials earlier said.
