Malaysian airport police seize drugs hidden with Indian prayer ash
Kuala Lumpur - Malaysian airport police seized 150 kilogrammes of ketamine worth 2.7 million ringgit (780,000 dollars), which were hidden among boxes of Hindu prayer ash from India, a news report said Tuesday. The drugs were seized during a check on a container from Chennai, India, which was docked Wednesday at the western port of Klang, the New Straits Times daily said.
Customs officers discovered that the container, which also held spices and Hindu prayer paraphernalia, contained 130 boxes of ketamine, department Director-General Ibrahim Jaapar said.
He said authorities were working with Indian counterparts on the case but have yet to make any arrests.
