Army nabs 3 drug peddlers

SILCHAR, August 3: 33 Field Regiment of 57 Mountain Artillery Brigade under
the aegis of Red Shield Division of Army launched an operation at New Silchar Railway Station on Saturday last and took into custody three persons with 20 kg of ganja, 2 mobile phones and Indian currency worth Rs 2600. After taking them into dragnet, the miscreants along with recovered ganja were handed over to the railway police, here next day.
Illegal trade of ganja is affecting youths by luring them into this business due to the flow of easy money that they get by smuggling and supplying the contraband. Operations against such illegal trade in ganja have been taken up by the army frequently which is expected to curb the illegal trafficking of contraband in Barak Valley. It is worth-mentioning that consequent to the deployment of army in this valley, illegal and anti social activities have come down remarkably. (SENTINELASSAM)
