Expanding narcotics business: More drugs seized

Silchar, March 17: Close on the heels of seizure of drugs in Katigorah in Cachar valued at Rs. 45 crore on March 11 came the haul of another two consignments of banned contraband goods, one in Dholai market, also in Cachar and the other in the town of Karimganj, according to the BSF sources here. It is to be recollected that in a joint operation by BSF and Director of Revenue Intelligence, the drugs in Katigorah identified as Pseudoephedrine tablets were seized which led to further raid in the Kanaisal palatial residence of the mastermind, Abdul Salam, located on the outskirt of the border town of Karimganj. This created sensation in civil circles, no doubt, but the clandestine business in banned goods was an open secret in this valley which "has emerged as a corridor for smuggling of narcotics, drugs and other substances. Even before the security and intelligence agencies could unfathom the ever expanding business in drugs, a joint operation by BSF
Sector Silchar Headquarters and Aizawl, the customs of Silchar and Narcotics Control Bureau of Guwahati seized from a truck Pseudoephedrine tablets weighing 633 kgs valued at Rs. 16.59 crore at Dholai Bazaar on Friday last. From the confession of the driver, Md. Movin (23) and his assistant, Mujib Ahmed (28), it was revealed that the truck was moving from Delhi and was bound for Myanmar through Mizoram. Both the drivers along with the seized tablets were handed over to Dholai police today for further action.
Following day, acting on specific tip off from its intelligence, 115 Bn BSF intercepted a DLX Tata car in Karimganj, near Baba hotel, on NH 44. The driver of the car Dulal Sabdakar (35) hailing from the village of Sarisa along river Kushiara disclosed that the consignment was of 900 bottles of Phensidyl cough syrup, much in demand both in Bangladesh and Myanmar for its intoxicating contents. The value of the Phensidyl was estimated at Rs. 72,000. After thorough interrogation, Dulal Sabdakar and the seized bottles of Phensidyl were handed over to Karimganj police for further cross–examination and necessary legal action.
The frequency with which contraband goods is being seized raises the relevant questions about the very security system of our country and also the worthiness of check–gates which are maintained at the cost of public money. It is really puzzling how the smugglers inside the country can be so daring as to take their trucks all the way from Delhi to the remotest part of Barak Valley for shipment to Bangladesh and Myanmar. This reflects on the core issue of how deep corruption has percolated down in the governance of our country which can only be ignored at the cost of internal security. (Source: SentinelAssam)
