BANGKOK – Customs officials at Suvarnabhumi International Airport have arrested an Indian woman who was found to be smuggling 1.62 kilograms of crystallized methamphetamine or ‘ya ice’ worth a total of 6.5 million baht.

Mitu Mandal, an Indian kindergarten teacher, was apprehended by police at the airport as she was traveling to Thailand. The young woman confessed that a Nigerian acquaintance of hers had paid her 50,000 rupees, which is roughly around 20,000 baht to smuggle the drugs into Thailand.

Statistically, the number of airline passengers who smuggle drugs into Thailand has been on the rise. Therefore, the Customs Department has ordered its officials to strictly monitor any passengers suspected of smuggling drugs. At this point, the police have sent Ms. Mandal to the Narcotics Suppression Bureau to hear the charges against her. She will be prosecuted for violating the Narcotics Act and Thailand’s drug laws.
