“Coronavirus pandemic tested our patience and resilience. Many of our near and dear ones lost their lives in the pandemic.

“In 2021, 2152 cases under NDPS Act have been registered in the state and a total number of 3643 persons arrested alongside recovery of 4.15 kg of heroin, 18590.73 kg of ganja, 69.32 kg of opium, 31.64 lakh numbers of tablet, 1.55 lakh bottles of cough syrup and cash amounting to Rs 2.35 crore. Further a mobile app ‘Drugs Free Assam’ has been developed. In the action against illegal transportation cattle, a total of 685 cases have registered from January 1, 2021 to October 31 last year and 520 persons have been arrested alongside seizing of 180 numbers of vehicles and 7109 numbers of cattles,” Prof. Mukhi said.
