Reports from the UK say authorities are urging the public to be more careful with these cartoon-shaped pills. This is done because children can stumble upon the harmful substances by accident and consume them by treating them as sweets. There have been many cases where such cartoon-shaped pills have been seized in various countries.
130 MDMA tablets worth $ 5,445 or Rs 4 lakhs were recovered and seized under the NDPS Act of 1985. The seized tablets contain approximately 250 mg of MDMA, which is a very high dose. The package arrived from Poulainville, a city in northern France, and was shipped to an address in the city of Chennai. Searches in the apartment were unsuccessful as the apartment was locked and has reportedly been unoccupied since the lockdown.
