Numal Mahatta, Superintendent of Police for Cachar, commended the collaborative efforts of the Lakhipur Police and the 29th Assam Rifles in carrying out this successful operation. He stated, “This joint operation underscores our commitment to combat the menace of drug trafficking in our region. The seizure of such a large quantity of yaba tablets is a significant blow to the illegal drug trade network operating in Cachar.”
Legal proceedings against Ramsanga Hmar are now underway, and authorities are determined to uncover any potential links to wider drug distribution networks. This operation sends a clear message that the authorities are actively engaged in curbing the illegal drug trade, aiming to maintain the safety and well-being of the community.
The apprehension of Ramsanga Hmar and the seizure of such a large quantity of yaba tablets serve as a stark reminder of the ongoing battle against narcotics and the dedication of law enforcement agencies in ensuring the security of the region’s residents.
