Mumbai:  DRI Mumbai successfully thwarted a drug smuggling attempt by an Ugandan woman national who carried out an unconventional method by hiding drugs inside her bra pads and hair wig. 

As a drugs enforcement organization, the DRI has busted several operatives, including those that used sanitary pads, liquid cocaine in whiskey bottles, black cocaine, cocaine in moisturizer bottles, and other techniques of concealment. This time it was more difficult because of the concealing inside the bra cups and the hair wig.
