Two African nationals were arrested in the capital on charges of drug peddling and a consignment of pure cocaine seized from them, police said on Saturday.

"One of the accused belongs to Uganda and the other hails from Nigeria. They were arrested on March 7," Deputy Commissioner of Police AS Cheema told.

"Large amounts of pure cocaine was also recovered from them," he added.

According to official sources, the Ugandan had come to India on a student visa and was living in Mayur Vihar in east Delhi for the last four months. The Nigerian was putting up at Vasant Vihar, southwest Delhi.

Police suspect that the duo could have supplied drugs to the Pune rave party held on March 4.

The party of young IT professionals and students, including 29 girls and 12 foreigners, was cut short by undercover policemen in a neat predawn swoop that landed 251 people behind bars.
