Three youths coming on R15 motorcycles were stopped for checking.

During the interrogations, their uneasy behaviour created suspicion in the minds of the police and subsequently the police team was able to recover a total of 3,000 psychotropic tablets from the possession of the 3 youths.

The youths were later identified as Shahadot Ali, Munna Hoque Choudhury, and Rofiqul Islam.

The arrest has been termed as a success in the continuous endeavour of the police in Goalpara town to crack on the anti-social activists.
