The Indian Coast Guard prevented the transhipment of around 260 kg of narcotics worth Rs 2,100 crore in the Lakshadweep Sea, an official statement said on Monday.

Earlier this month, ships and aircraft of the Indian Coast Guard (ICG) observed suspicious movement of three Sri Lankan fishing boats during patrol off the Lakshadweep islands, it said.

Initial investigation revealed that one of the three boats called 'Akarsha Duwa' was at sea for a longer duration of over a fortnight, the statement said.

"Inconsistent information received and abnormal behaviour of its crew further raised the suspicion level.... while en-route, the crew noticed the presence of ICG ships and aircraft in the area.
