An Indian man who was arrested for attempting to smuggle drugs to Bahrain reportedly claims he was framed by relatives of his “friend” living here.
The accused, named only as Sudheesh, was caught by officials at the Cochin International Airport in the Indian state of Kerala possessing 10 grams of Cannabis concealed in a dense sweet confection called Halva.
The 21-year-old claimed he had no clue of the crime he had committed and that he was given the sweet box by the relatives of a friend in Bahrain.
“It was for my friend in Bahrain, I am innocent,” Sudheesh told officers. His case has been transferred to the local police for further action.
