Yet in another big drug haul, troops of Assam Rifles manning the Trans Asia Highway no. 1 (Imphal-Moreh road)  seized drugs valued over Rs 24 crore in the international market from two individuals, official source said on Tuesday.

The seized drugs includes eight kg of brown sugar which is estimated at over Rs 17 crore in the international market and nine kg of crystal meth (crystal methamphetamine) valued around Rs seven crore in the international market. Methamphetamine is said to be a white crystalline drug that people take by snorting (inhaling through the nose), smoking it or injecting with a syringe.  The illegal drugs were seized separately from two vehicles during checks of vehicles originating from the border town Moreh by troops of 12 Assam Rifles manning the Khudengthabi vehicle check post along the highway in Tengnoupal district on Monday. 

The brown sugar was seized from a Maruti Eco brand car (AS01-AQ 0689) driven by one Kumar Gurung from Senapati district, while the crystal meth was seized from a Toyota Altis car (HR26-7623) driven by one Khamboumang (51), a resident of Moreh ward no. 3, the source said.

Both the individuals along with the seized items have been handed over to Narcotic Control Bureau (NCB) authority on Monday night, the source added.
