Guwahati: In two separate incidents, Assam Police have seized narcotic substances worth several crores from Cachar and Karbi Anglong districts, officials said on Monday. Five persons, who were allegedly involved in drug peddling, were apprehended by the police.

In Cachar, three people were arrested with 1.80 lakh tablets used for intoxication on Sunday in the Lakhipur area in the district. Police informed that the international market value of seized tablets is around Rs 50 crore.

The accused were identified as Abdul Saeed, Ibazur Rahman and Sameer Alam, all residents of the Cachar district.

Cachar Superintendent of Police Numal Mahato said, “These three were smuggling tablets in a lorry. The drugs were being smuggled in a secret chamber built in the vehicle’s carrier. Based on a specific information, three people were arrested after searching the vehicle and tablets were seized.”
