Troops of Assam Rifles delivered huge quantities of illegal Betel Nuts which were recovered on January 28 from Makan and Wanglee villages. These illegal items were delivered at Department of Customs, Imphal Depot on February 28 after persistent efforts from Assam Rifles.

A press release by PRO ( Defence) stated that since  January 28 , these illegally smuggled betel nuts from Myanmar were dumped across the border for further black marketing, had to be kept under round the clock observation by Assam Rifles as the representatives and vehicles from Customs Department could not reach the remote areas of Makan and Wanglee.

Finally, custom officials were assisted by Assam Rifles in reaching the location of seizure. The press release by AR stated that the “nefarious anti-national elements released false allegations against Assam Rifles to the extent of siphoning off the recovered items”. AR stated that the “accusations released with the malicious intent to tarnish the incorruptible image of Assam Rifles has been silenced once again by Assam Rifles’ conscientious acts” and that it raises questions on authenticity of report biased towards creating pressure on Assam Rifles to reduce their vigilance.
