In a significant drug bust, Gujarat's anti-terrorist squad (ATS) officials detained six people in connection with the seizure of 225kg of mephedrone worth $1,125crore during a Tuesday raid at a plant that was still under construction outside of Vadodara.

Joshi claims that the narcotics were produced at a chemical factory in Saykha GIDC in the Bharuch district before being processed at the facility that is now under construction in Savli taluka of the Vadodara district, where the raid was carried out.

According to the SP, Mahesh Vaishnav, who lives in Surat, and Piyush Patel, who lives in Vadodara, are the owners of the factory there.

He added that Rakesh Makani, Vijay Vasoya, and Dilip Vaghasia are the owners of the Bharuch facility.
