New Delhi: A 64-year-old Peruvian national has been arrested with 1.3 kg of pure cocaine worth Rs.6.5 crore in the international market, police said on Wednesday.

Earlier, the Delhi Police had mistakenly valued the price of the cocaine at Rs.65 crore. However, joint commissioner of police (crime) Ravindra Yadav later clarified that the value of the drug in the international market was Rs.6.5 crore and not Rs.65 crore.

"The value of cocaine seized in the international market is Rs.6.5 crore and not Rs.65 crore," Ravindra Yadav told mediapersons.

Peruvian national Armando was arrested from the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport here on Monday, when he arrived from Sao Paulo in Brazil via Dubai in an Emirates flight.

The police said the drug was concealed in the cavities of the trolley bag wrapped in four layers of plastic and silver foil to avoid X-ray detection.
