Indian Air Force Wing Commander Rajasekhar Reddy and a Bengaluru based scientist were arrested in relation to an international drug racket, NDTV reported. Reddy was arrested from Nanded in Maharashtra during the weekend following raids in which drugs like ecstacy and 230 kg of amphetamine were seized, it said.

Reddy was under scanner of Narcotics Control Bureau and Indian Air Force. He was posted at the Air Headquarters in Delhi. Mobile phones and Rs 7.5 lakh cash is also recovered from him.

The drug amphetamines was reportedly manufactured at a factory in Hyderabad from where it was trafficked to places like Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand. Earlier on Tuesday, the NCB had busted an inter-state drug network which was operating in Hyderabad and Bengaluru in which drugs worth Rs 45 crore were seized.

          the ssb interviews are said to be very clean. then how come officers like these get through in ssb. that itself means there is something wrong with the ssb procedure.lt;br/gt;and these kind of incidents also demotivate the young boys who have an ambition to serve in the iaf as a commissioned officer.

            Forces personnel too have been affected by the "easy money making" lure . It would have been better that wing commander had left IAF and pursued his career as a drug trafficker rather than bring bad name to the much disciplined service.
