In April 2016, the Thane police effected a rich drugs haul from Mumbai, Thane and Solapur of around 18.5 tonnes of ephedrine and 2.5 tonnes of acetic anhydride, valued at more than Rs 2,000 crore, blowing the lid off a major global narcotics racket.

This means that the couple's passports can be seized and that they can be arrested in any part of the country within the period of a month. The court is likely to attach the two properties of Kulkarni located in Andheri and will issue Red Corner Notice (RCN) against the duo in the next hearing.

Public prosecutor Shishir Hiray has said, "Now, the law-enforcing agencies have to act and the police have to file the compliance report within 30 days about execution of order".

"The court noticed that the accused are proclaimed offenders and declared them as an absconding accused in the case", said Hiray.

On April 13, 2016, the police arrested two drug peddlers, Sagar Suresh Powale and Mayur Suresh Sukhdare, with Ephedrine worth Rs 12 lakh and later busted a racket worth Rs 2,000 crore at a factory in Solapur.

Police said that Kulkarni's name was included in the FIR after the DEA provided evidences of involvement of Moroccan and Colombian drug mafia in the case and how the Goswami-Kulkarni couple attended certain drug smuggling meetings in January-April past year.

Vicky Goswami is known to be an worldwide drug lord.

Incidentally, Goswami and Kulkarni were detained by Kenyan authorities in 2014 on the charge of drug trafficking.

In March this year, Thane Police had reportedly found out that Ephedrine was being diverted from Avon Life science to a Kenya-based drug cartel, allegedly headed by Goswami where it was used to make party-drug Methamphetamine. While on March 27, 2017, Non bailable warrant was issued by the Thane sessions court against Kulkarni and the worldwide drug lord, Vicky Goswami. Mamata's lawyers have denied all allegations against her.
