'Black cocaine' seized

3.22 kg of 'black cocaine' has been recovered from a Brazilian national at Ahmedabad airport. Drugs are estimated to be worth ₹ 32 crore. A press release said 'black cocaine' is made by mixing cocaine with charcoal and other chemicals to give it a black rubbery appearance and camouflage it. The process helps evade detection by canines and field-testing kits. Cops received a tip-off.
