Now news has emerged that Judge H M Patwardhan has issued non-bailable arrest warrants in a special court against Mamta Kulkarni and alleged international drug lord Vijaygiri aka Vicky Goswami.

The warrant was issued after the Thane police produced evidence against Kulkarni, which included WhatsApp chats, pictures of the meetings that were held at Kenya, call records, and also the statements recorded from arrested accused Jay Mukhi, Manoj Jain and Kishore Singh Rathod, reports Hindustan Times.

Thane police raided Avon Lifesciences in Solapur last year and seized around 18.5 tonne of ephedrine worth Rs 2,000 crore.

As per the police, ephedrine was being diverted from Avon Lifesciences to a Kenya-based drug cartel headed by Goswami, where it was used to make party-drug Methamphetamine.

Special public prosecutor Shishir Hiray, in a marathon submission to the special court, sought the warrant, and informed the court that they have ample evidence against the duo and their involvement in the drug racket as a prime accused, reports Times Of India.
