Mumbai police have arrested three Nigerian men alongwith a Brazilian woman and seized cocaine worth around 39 crore rupees from their possession. 

Additional Commissioner of Police, Manoj Kumar Sharma, said the accused were about to send the drug to South Africa. A team of Amboli police nabbed the accused from the Maurya Estate road in suburban Andheri Saturday night and recovered drugs worth 38.95 crore rupees. The accused were identified as Neras Pokhogo, Michael Hop, Simon Agobata, all Nigerians; and Karle Ires, a woman from Brazil. 

The cocaine allegedly seized from their possession was supposed to be sent to Johannesburg in South Africa. The accused were held when they were heading for the office of a courier company to dispatch the consignment. The official said  the accused concealed narcotic drugs in rings and pipes of curtains. These drug-loaded consignments of curtains would be then sent abroad through courier companies. The police were probing whether courier company officials were aware of this racket. 

The accused were booked under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act. A local court remanded them in seven-day police custody.
