According to media reports, while investigating LSD vendors on the dark web, the NCB identified ZambadaCartel as the largest distributor of LSD in India.
An operation launched on April 19, 2023, helped the investigators establish that the vendor operated from Delhi. Further investigations led to the identification of two individuals suspected of working for the vendor.
The two suspects were placed under surveillance and reportedly led the investigators to the operator of the ZambadaCartel vendor account.
The investigators executed search warrants at properties associated with the trio. The searches resulted in the seizure of 13,863 LSD blots, 428 grams of MDMA, and approximately $32,300 in cash.
The investigators established that ZambadaCartel was involved in the resale of LSD bolts purchased from other prolific darknet vendors such as "Dr Seuss." Speaking in response to the bust via a signed message posted on Dread, Dr Seuss said he would put all listings ship to India offline.

ZambadaCartel is the second vendor busted as part of the NCB's operation against dark web LSD vendors. The first vendor was busted in early June. The NCB arrested six suspects and seized approximately 15,000 LSD blots and 2.5 kilograms of marijuana during the bust.
The NCB also disclosed that it is investigating a third LSD vendor in the ongoing operation.
