Fwd: Be careul while travelling to Dubai or other gulf countries *

Dear All,

Yesterday only I  came to know of a case from a friend of mine which
is very scary. One of his friends was traveling to UK via Dubai .
Unfortunately he was carrying a packet of Khas Khas(Poppy Seed) which
is a commonly used spice in some Indian curries and sweets. Khas Khas
is also known as poppy seed which can be sprouted to grow narcotics
(afeem etc.).

This innocent person did not know that recently the laws in UAE and
other Gulf countries have been revised and carrying Khas Khas is
punishable with minimum 20 years of imprisonment or even worse with
death penalty. Currently, the person is in a jail in Dubai for the
last two weeks. His friends are frantically trying hard for his
release but are finding that this has become a very very serious case.
Lawyers are asking huge fees amounting to AED 100,000 even to appear
in the court to plead for his innocence.

Please forward this email to all you know specially in India . They
should know the seriousness of this matter and should never ever carry
even minutest quantities of the following items when traveling to Gulf

1. Khas Khas whether raw, roasted or cooked.
2. Paan
3. Beetle nut (supari and its products, e.g. Paan Parag etc.)

The penalties are very severe and it could destroy the life of an
innocent person.

I appeal you to create the awareness by forwarding this email to all you know.

Thanks and Best Regards

Yesterday's miracle is today's science.
