State BJP Yuva Morcha general secretary Pamela Goswami, her friend and security guard were arrested in south Kolkata on Friday for allegedly carrying 90 grams of cocaine worth Rs 10 lakh in her car, Indian Express reported.
They would be produced before a court on Saturday, said the New Alipore police.
While the BJP said the law should take its course, the TMC was not surprised with the drug haul, saying earlier a “BJP woman leader was arrested in a child trafficking case”.
Besides Goswami (23) from Patuli, the other two have been identified as Prabir Kumar Dey (38), a resident of Garia, and Somnath Chatterjee (26) from Aushgram in East Burdwan.
They have been booked under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985.
