The NCB last month busted a major drug trafficking racket after raiding a mephedrone manufacturing unit in Dongri area of south Mumbai.

It had arrested gangster Parvez Khan alias Chinku Pathan, a henchman of fugitive underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, following seizure of mephedrone.

The probe agency had also nabbed Arif Bhujwala, who set up the drugs unit in Dongri area here, officials earlier said.
