By K.V. Subramanya

BANGALORE, DEC. 8. A Nigerian national is suspected to be the main supplier of narcotic drugs at raves that are held on the outskirts of Bangalore, mainly on the Karnataka-Tamil Nadu border.

Sources in the Bangalore city police told The Hindu on Wednesday that the Nigerian national, Steve, alias Rocks, supplied cocaine and other narcotics to the participants at raves and in various discotheques in the city.

The sources said that Steve was lying low and there were reports that he was in Chennai.

He was a frequent visitor to some clubs on the outskirts of Bangalore and a few pubs and places where live bands played in Bangalore.

About the raid by the officials of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), Chennai, on a rave held at Nallur, near Hosur in Tamil Nadu, on November 13, the sources said the Bangalore city police had been collecting intelligence on such parties.

The NCB officials, who arrested the disc jockey (DJ) at the party and seized ecstasy tablets and cocaine from the premises, are investigating the origin of the narcotic drugs.
