The World

October 23, 1987

India announced it will pay $32 million to Nigeria in a negotiated settlement of a drug-smuggling case involving charges against three crew members of the Indian national airline. The announcement, by India's diplomatic mission in Lagos, was followed by departure from Lagos of an Air-India A-310 Airbus that had been impounded for two months under threat of confiscation. Charges of cocaine smuggling against the crew members were dropped, and the three accused were aboard the Airbus when it left. They could have faced life imprisonment.
