Obiorah Ekwelarat was nabbed from Mankhurd during an NCB raid in a swampy area near the railway tracks. Referring to the operation as among its most difficult in the city, the NCB said one of its officials also sustained a head injury.

The team caught Ekwelarat from the back-end of the power house in the area and also seized the drugs, while other members of his gang managed to flee using the terrain and darkness to their advantage, an NCB official said.

In the melee, the gangsters also attacked the officials using weapons, stones and a machete. One of the team members suffered a head injury while four others suffered superficial injuries, the official said.
