Hyderabad: Excise officials took custody of Dutch national Mike Kamminga following a court order. Excise officials would grill Kaminga for six days. Kamminga, who was on his fourth visit to India, is considered a key link in the supply of drugs from European countries to the accused already arrested in the case.
Meanwhile, Mike Kamminga’s siblings and friends said that he was framed by the police and that he had no habit of consuming drugs. They uploaded video messages supporting and vouching for him and sought his immediate release.
“He was framed. This is a case of mistaken identity. After this incident his wife went into depression,” said his friend Nicholas Desai in a video message. “He belongs to a good family and does not consume drugs. Please let him go,” said another friend, who introduced herself as Rilana. Emma Gillems, a teacher from Netherlands, also came out supporting him stating she knew him for two years and that he never used drugs.
They said they would approach The Netherlands government to demand the release of Kamminga. Kamminga, who was living in a gated community at Nanakramguda was allegedly caught smoking DMT (Dimethyltryptamine).
Meanwhile, excise officials said they have evidence against the Dutchman, and his confession would reveal more details of the drug trade in Hyderabad....
