Guwahati police seize heroin worth Rs 9 crores, 6 peddlers arrested

Guwahati: Continuing its crusade against drug rackets, the Assam police have tasted major success and seized a major drug consignment in the Sonapur area of Guwahati late on Saturday night.

Working on a confirmed tip-off, Guwahati police seized Heroin, weighing 1.32 kilograms from a vehicle coming from Manipur. The seized heroin has been estimated to be worth over Rs 9.25 crore in international markets. 

The drugs were seized from a Bolero car near the Sonapur Toll Gate in an operation headed by top officials of Guwahati police. 

The heroin shipment (100packets, each weighing 13grams) was stuffed into different parts of the car, including the engine compartment, seats, tail lamps, etc. 

A preliminary investigation reveals that the drugs were smuggled into Guwahati from Manipur. The drug consignment entered through Moreh in the India-Myanmar border and stuffed in the vehicle for Assam in the Churachandpur area in Manipur.  Police are investigating whether the consignment was for distribution in Assam or was it to smuggle to other states? 

Meanwhile, six persons have been arrested, thus far, in connection with the seizure of a huge quantity of drugs.

Guwahati police commissioner Harmeet Singh told the media that in the last one-month city police have arrested 121 drug paddlers including two women paddlers. City police seized 3 kilograms of heroin, 8000 Yaba tablets, 14500 bottles of banned cough syrups,89 lakhs cash and 20 vehicles.
