Two men were arrested in Delhi's Rohini area on Tuesday for allegedly smuggling heroin brought from a woman in Manipur to other states, police said, adding that 14 kg of the contraband worth over Rs 50 crore was seized from them.

The accused, Sanjeet Kumar Singh (34) and Pardeep Kumar Yadav (24), both residents of Uttar Pradesh, were arrested in Rohini's Sector-24. They used to bring heroin from a woman in Manipur, the police said.

Total 14 kilogram heroin worth more than Rs 50 crore in the international market was recovered from their possession, they said.
