Police on Friday seized brown sugar and heroin worth Rs 5 crore from Assam’s Karbi Anglong district and arrested two suspected drug smugglers.
Acting on a tip-off, a team led by deputy superintendent of police Nahid Karishma intercepted a Guwahati-bound truck coming from Manipur at a check post on Dimapur-Manja road.
Seventy-five packets, each containing 200 Yaba tablets (powerful stimulant drug), and 68 packets with 13-15 grams of brown sugar and heroin in each packet, were recovered from the vehicle, a senior official said.
“The price of these drugs will be around Rs 5 crore in the international market. We have also arrested two persons,” the police said.
A case has been registered and further investigation is on.
