Excise nab `rape drug' from Thrissur
Thrissur: A Thrissur native was nabbed with methylenedioxy-methamphetamine (MDMA) aka ‘rape drug’ from Mannuthy. The smuggler has been identified as Shefi (23). He is a student from Bengaluru.
Thrissur excise range team seized 2-gram rape drug from Shefi. MDMA is known as rape drug as it is used to victimise girls for sexual abuse. It is a synthetic drug.
2-gram drug could be used against 120 people. In the interrogation, Shefi revealed that the drug is distributed by Benjamil Bruno, a Nigerian native, who is known as Marley uncle. A single gram drug costs Rs 5000 for Shefi.
Rs 500 is charged for a single dose used for an individual. The excise team got the information that Shefi was carrying the drug from Bengaluru to Kerala. With the help of a young man, the excise team became a member of a WhatsApp group in which Shefi was a member. It helped the officers gather information about his arrival.
This is the third time rape drug is being seized from Thrissur.
MDMA, the psychoactive drug, is primarily used as a recreational drug. If a small portion of the drug is consumed in juice, the effect will begin after 30-45 minutes and lasts for 6 – 9 hours. The person will have an increased energy and pleasure. Once high, the person will not be able to remember anything that happens during the period.
Overdose of the drug could lead to death.
