Imphal/IBNS: In a major operation undertaken by the security forces, a joint team of Assam Rifles and Manipur Police seized nearly 72 kg of Brown Sugar from Kamu in Thoubal district of Manipur on 11 November.

Based on intelligence inputs received about a large consignment of drugs hidden in the area awaiting further distribution to various parts of the country, multiple teams were launched by Assam Rifles and Manipur Police on the intervening night of 10 and 11 November.

In a painstaking search undertaken in difficult terrain in the hours of darkness, three concealed bags containing Brown Sugar were recovered in the early hours of 11 November.

The market value of the narcotics recovered is assessed to be over Rs 287 crore.

The security forces remain committed in their efforts to curb the drug menace in North East India by targeting the manufacturing and distribution networks.
