One arrested with 200 containers of heroin

One drug trafficker along with 200 containers of heroin was arrested by the Dharmanagar police from Rajbari area in Dharmanagar sub-division of North Tripura district on Sunday.

Acting on a tip off police personnel from Dharmanagar police station raided the house of one   Nirmal Kaluar resident of Rajbari area in Dharmanagar. During the raid police recovered 200 containers of heroin along 10 mobile phones from Nirmal Kaluar’s house.

Some young people are taking their lives to the brink of extinction, like heroin and brown sugar. Being addicted to drugs, they are also involved in various anti-social activities. Unable to raise money for drugs, some are organizing thefts at various homes and shops, which has led to an increase in thefts.

However, Chief Minister Dr. Manik Saha has called on Tripura to get rid of drugs. Police are seizing crores worth of heroin, brown sugar and arresting traffickers, but the real kingpins remain out of reach, which is why the state is not moving towards a drug-free state despite so many anti-drug campaigns.

A case has been registered under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act in this regard and we have started investigation.  He will be produced before the court on June 05, said cops.
