Mumbai Polive Searches for a Wat Into The Dark Web

The dark web continues to do more damage every day. Despite the numerous efforts that many law enforcement agencies and government across the globe are doing, it still isn’t enough to put a stop to it. Many criminals are in bed with the dark part of the internet and do not intend to stop anytime soon due to the freedom they enjoy over there. Many countries have seen their streets flooded with illegal drugs which are causing death tolls to rise and thanks to the dark web.

Illicit drugs which under any circumstances wouldn’t be sold because of its status can be easily acquired on the dark web which has caused drug abusers to embrace this new reality, making the fight against the dark web a very difficult one.

The United States, Canada and countries in Europe have been bleeding from the harm that the dark web is causing. Many arrests have been made so far but still hasn’t helped the situation. For instance, drug overdose deaths in the U.S., skyrocketed last year up to 21%. From, 52,000 the number rose to 63,600 within just a year and this was attributed to the opioid epidemic which was caused by drugs from the dark web.

However, one country has also been on the receiving end of the dark web’s harm–India. For a few years now, Indians have gotten on the dark web train, committing all kinds of crimes there is to commit on the dark web.

Rustom Juneja, a marijuana-smoker, last year told investigators he used to get his drugs from local dealers in his neighborhood until he got bored of “Indian product” and decided to switch to the dark web in 2015. “I brought strains of marijuana from the U.S. and Canada, from a marketplace on the dark web,” he stated.

Just as many countries, law enforcement agencies in the country have been trying all possible means to put a stop to the situation. Just last year, many arrests were made involving the sales of drugs ordered from the dark web.

Reports now claim that Mumbai police have taken a new approach in trying to halt this situation by joining in on the action. The police are trying to find a way to enter the dark web to stop the supply of illegal drugs.

According to the Anti-Narcotics Cell (ANC), most dark web drug dealers have their identity protected by using the special software Tor, which provides them anonymity. Users on this website, therefore, enjoy some high-level encrypted protection, making it difficult for them to be caught.

DCP Shivdeep Lande of the ANC stated that they learned about the dark web after interrogating five students who were arrested in May last year for possessing illegal drugs (1,400 LSD tabs and ecstasy) of which they ordered from the dark web to an Indian friend in the United States. “They used to send money using Bitcoin to him, and he would then place an order for drugs on the dark web and would get the drugs delivered to the youngsters’ delivery address,” Mr. Lande stated.

Prashant Mali, a cyber-expert advocate also explained that normally, global suppliers do not deceive their buyers, as it would be bad for the growth of their business. However, when this happens, the customers then alert others about the seller in the various chat rooms on the dark web. “The cheaters are then blocked,” he added.

He then urged the Indian Law enforcement agencies to create a Cyber Spy Force to follow the trend in the virtual world and take measures to stop it.

A senior official with the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in New Delhi also stepped in saying that the dark web is just something used to hide identity and that there is more to drug dealings over there. He states that, once a buyer places an order, it needs to be processed and that requires a physical residence.


  1. First this talks about drug-induced deads and then about a marijuana-smoker, how is that connected? India has some of the best hashish in the world, why would they worry about foreign weed? This is just bullshite….

  2. They still don’t get it do they? The war on drugs is well and truly lost. Legalize ALL drugs and stop the tons of cash going into criminals pockets OVERNIGHT…… It’s as simple as that…

    • There’s no such thing as they, the .gov skeletons, understanding the true results of the War on Drugs. They won’t do eliminate it because then they’d lose control (mainly the CIA & DEA).

      Of course, there’s always moving to another nation that isn’t heavily up the ass.

  3. Grammar much?

  4. Yeah, this article is middle-schoolish.. number 1 it’s police, not polive.. for a Wat? Whattttt? Spell check. The article blames the darkweb but the stats of drugs pre-darkweb is just as bad. Google it. Yeah overdoses and drug use may be on the rise but you can’t blame anything for that.
    Don’t get me wrong I’m not an advocate for anything illegal or against law and order. But your article Kofi has many fallacy’s. Without direct proof you’re just a blogger spouting off what your views are. Nothing precise.

  5. The opiate epidemic came from big pharma over 10 years ago. Jeff Sessions is a puppet.

  6. I agree with Freeminder on this one,This article is badly written,Lazy incoherent dribble. I would expect a higher standard from DDW.

  7. I have been alive for a little longer than 60 years. Experience tells me that in a War, Nobody wins. Another thing that I learned over a great deal of time and voluminous personal experiences, is that human beings will always use drugs. Whether it’s alcohol or the myriad other chemicals available virtually everywhere. The “WAR” on Drugs is a bad joke perpetrated by an overly large and corrupt bureaucracy. With 60 some years behind me I able to see everything I go through much more clearly than when I was younger. Human beings are simple animals. They care about 3 things, Sex, Power and Money. Period! Forward looking Countries have begun reassesing drugs and they are beginning to take a closer look at Countries like Portugal, which decriminalized the possession of all drugs in personal use quantities. Drug use in that country has gone down there every year since drugs were decriminalized. Unfortunately in a bureaucracy as bloated and politically motivated as the US is, real change takes a very very long time. Drugs, including Alcohol are responsible for vast amounts of tax money collected by this country every day. Take alcohol for instance, if a reasonable, intelligent group of people were chosen to assess alcohol with the same set of criteria that society uses to categorize other drugs(yes, alcohol IS a drug) they would overwhelmingly decry the harm that this substance does to the individual consumer as well as the families that are devastated by a drinking father,mother,sister or brother. Where would Washington be if alcohol wasn’t around to lubricate the hallowed halls of Washington? To be continued:

  8. It wouldn’t surprise me if western countries found ways to start banning tor/vpn/encryption. Wouldn’t surprise me at all.
    I’m starting to think they might start pushing for it very soon, considering all the propaganda they keep spreading around.

    Here’s how I see the future regarding the Internet/deepweb:

    -Feed the public propaganda. “Think of the children!” “Drugs are bad mkay?” “Killers for hire with the click of a button!!11, OMG”

    -Cyber Crime units gets the ok, hundreds of millions, sometimes even billions invested

    -2030/2040: “We must ban Tor and VPN’s! It’s the only way!!” -> more propaganda

  9. “due to the freedom they enjoy over there.”

    That’s the whole point, freedom. People like that. Sucks heh?

  10. The title of this article has TWO typos! Come on!

  11. “Illicit drugs which under any circumstances wouldn’t be sold because of its status can be easily acquired on the dark web”
    :D this sentence is pure gold. Because no person have ever sold or bought illegal drugs before darknet markets, right?

    And case in point of the current US opioid epidemic:
    it is not caused by the dark web. It was caused by two things: generations of doctors prescribing opioid based painkillers for even slightest pain symptoms (US is the leading consumer of prescription drugs), and the rising popularity of Fentanyl as the “street” drug. Fentanyl is far more potent than morphine or even heroin, so it’s much easier to smuggle (bulk of the trade comes from China), but also much riskier and easier to overdose fatally.

    That’s about the “drug deaths” part. I see other commenters already pointed out the rest of ridiculous stuff. Yeah this article is load of bull, it’s weird it got posted on a website that is said to deal with hidden services.
