Shajji Mohan (41), deputy director of the Enforcement Directorate, Kochi, was arrested by the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorist Squad on Sunday for possessing 12.8 kg of heroin, worth more than Rs 12 crore.

Mohan, who earlier held a senior post with the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in Chandigarh, is suspected to have removed portions of the drug that was seized through routine NCB checks.

Mohan’s involvement in an inter-state drug cartel had surfaced after the arrest of Rakesh Khatariya (36), a former constable with Haryana police, who had come to Mumbai to sell 1.5 kg of brown sugar.
