Three people, including a woman, have been arrested with 4 kg of heroin worth Rs 40 million in east Delhi, police said on Sunday.
Sleuths of Anti-Narcotics Cell of the Delhi police arrested the trio on Saturday near Akshardham temple.
The arrested people were identified as Rajender Singh, Shamim Ahmed, both hailing from Bareilly district in Uttar Pradesh, and Anjali Gahlot, a resident of Dabri in southwest Delhi.
"Rajender Singh belongs to a poor family and the greed for money forced him to take to this easy money making business," said a police official.
According to him, Shamim Ahmad was pursuing his post graduation in history from Rohilkhand University.
Anjali Gahlot was responsible for arranging receivers in the capital.
"We are trying to identify and arrest the others involved in the network," Deputy Commissioner of Police (Narcotics) A.S. Cheema said.
A few days ago, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) had arrested two people with 1,200 kg of charas in northwest Delhi.
