CONVICTED SYNTHETIC DRUG IMPORTER CONTROLS NETWORK OF PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES IN INDIA

On 24 August, Sayari reported that an Indian businessman, Jeetendra Harish Ielani, who pleaded guilty in December to drug importation, smuggling, and money laundering charges is connected to a broader network of India-based pharmaceutical companies, according to public records.  He had admitted imported into the US various drugs available only by prescription, including tapentadol, a Schedule II controlled substance, as well as tramadol, carisoprodol, and modafinil. The article says that the case is indicative of a growing trend, namely the emerging role of India as a key source of illicit synthetic drugs, along with licit drugs sold illegally.
