Our forces are monitoring drug traffickers in various ways and targeting their movements at the right time, with success.

The amount of drugs seized today is at least the biggest success this year. Much more drugs were seized last year too. We guess that there is a big foreign racket involved, but it is a matter of investigation. Attempts are being made to smuggle drugs not only through Karimganj to other states or international borders, but also in our district as well. We have to stop that too because it is harming the youth of our society. Of course, in this regard, the cooperation and awareness of the general public are very important”.

The seizure of such a large quantity of drugs has created turmoil and tension in various quarters. In the past police with the collaboration of BSF have busted several large-scale drug operations. The BSF official said the drug traffickers used to throw packets of drugs across the borders. Packets of money were thrown here. This activity catches the eyes of the locals and informed the police and consequently, some people were arrested.

During the run-up of Assemble election Union Minister Amit Shah had announced the special narcotics unit will be set up in Barak valley. He said, “ Drug trafficking in this valley has increased tremendously and has got some international links. A special narcotics unit will be set up in the Barak Valley soon to prevent these incidents from happening”. The BJP-led government has formed in Assam for the second consecutive year and police have launched series of a campaigns against illegal drug activities. Maybe, in the future, a special narcotic unit will indeed be launched in the valley.
