Documentary Evidence of Drug Dealing

Two Indian Drug Couriers Arrested with 3 Kilogram of Methamphetamines Concealed as Sheets of Paper

The narcotics division of the Bali Police have apprehended two Indian nationals, Manjet Singh (23) and Harvinder Singh (26), who were arrested with 3 kilograms of methamphetamines that they smuggled into Bali. According to police, the men are suspected of being professional couriers, having made 7 trips to Indonesia, including 3 trips to Bali.

As reported by Beritabali.com, the Chief of the Denpasar Police Precinct, Ruddi Setiawan, said the two international drug couriers entered Indonesia via Jakarta and then traveled on to Bali with their shipment of narcotics. “They are part of an international narcotic network operating between India-Bali. They have already traveled to Jakarta 4 times and 3 times to Bali bringing as much as 3 kilograms each time,” said Setiawan on Wednesday, September 4, 2019.

In order to conceal their shipments of narcotics, the men modified the drugs into harmless-looking sheets of paper, placed in a plastic envelope in their suitcase.  After arriving in Bali, the men checked into a hotel on Jalan Pratama Bidadari Benoa in South Kuta on Tuesday, September 3, 2019, where they proceeded to unpacked their 3 kilograms of drugs.

Police arrested the men and seized their drugs based on information collected during a previous visit by the two men to Bali. Police say the two Indian men were destined for Buleleng, North Bali, where the drugs would be delivered to the next member in the narcotics distribution chain.

Police say the men were being paid Rp. 10 million each for serving as drug couriers,

Police plan to charge the two under sections of the anti-narcotics law that provides for a maximum 20 years in prison and a fine of between Rp. 800 million and Rp. 8 billion.
