KUALA LUMPUR: They used various means to smuggle in ketamine, be it in coffee sachets or in laser printer cartridges.  

In recent weeks, police found that the syndicate also used a new pipeline – from India, instead of the usual route from China, the Philippines and Singapore, where continuous crackdown has tightened supply. 

According to sources, ketamin is a legal drug used in the veterinary sector in India. 

Five Malaysians, a Taiwanese, a Hong Kong national and a woman from China were arrested in raids from May 23 to last Friday following the seizure of more than RM2.2mil worth of ketamine couriered from India.
