In a major development, the Dillai police have seized a huge consignment of “Ganja” from a 10 wheeler truck along Assam-Nagaland border here on Tuesday.

“Based on a specific information, SI Manujjal Gogoi and staff set up a mobile check over NH 36 in Assam-Nagaland interstate border and successfully recovered around 600 kilograms ganja from a Guwahati bound truck late Tuesday evening. 

The approximate face value of the seized cannabis is estimated to be around Rs 50 lakh in the black market.” Bokajan SDPO John Das said.

There has been a recent spike in smuggling of banned psychopathic drugs including cannabis into Assam through Karbi Anglong. Most of the drugs from the infamous Golden Triangle also enter Assam through Karbi Anglong. 

In the past couple of months, Karbi Anglong police have seized huge consignments of drugs ranging from Brown Sugar to Heroin and other forms of psychotropic drugs worth several crore in the international black market.
