BJP’s youth-wing leader Pamela Goswami was arrested with cocaine from south Kolkata’s upscale New Alipore area on Friday.
Goswami, the state secretary of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), was along with a friend, identified as Prabir Kumar Dey, in her car when both of them were nabbed, they said.
Around 100 gm of cocaine was allegedly found in her handbag, and other parts of the car, police said.
Acting on a tip-off, sleuths of the New Alipore police station made the arrests when she was parking the car, an officer said.
“She was involved in drug trafficking for quite some time. Today, we got information that she along with her supplier Prabir was reaching the spot to hand over the drugs to the purchasers,” the officer said.
A team of policemen in eight vehicles surrounded Goswami’s car and made the arrests, he said.
