“This is now a case of a controlled substance as opposed to a narcotic substance, of being a case of preparation of a controlled substance.
The police argued the distribution and sale of 38 million fentanyl pills would be responsible for a lot of deaths globally.
The DEA had then estimated that the amount of 1-Phenethyl-4-Piperidone would be sufficient to produce 19 million fentanyl pills valued at $570 million.
On Thursday, while opposing a bail plea filed by the accused, the police said that the accused were in possession of a large amount of a controlled substance that was manufactured in a factory in Rajkot, Gujarat.
A senior police officer said that the accused were going to send the substance to Mexico by fraudulent means.
