Indian jailed for 14 years for Bali drug-smuggling Denpasar
DENPASAR (AFP) – An Indian man was jailed for 14 years on Monday (March 28) for trying to bring crystal methamphetamine into the Indonesian resort island of Bali.
Sayed Mohammed Said was arrested with 1.5kg (53 ounces) of the narcotics hidden inside his backpack when he arrived at Bali airport from Bangkok in September.
The 30-year-old claimed the package belonged to a friend and he did not know it contained drugs. But he was found guilty Monday at a court in the Balinese capital Denpasar, and a judge handed down the 14-year sentence.
