Officials in Mizoram’s Excise and Narcotics Department have arrested three people, including two women, who were allegedly trafficking 10,000 tablets (1.22 kgs) of methamphetamine worth about Rs 22 lakhs from Myanmar towards Aizawl.

Those arrested include Thangbuanga, 41, Lalramawii, 37, and R Lalrinsangi, 36. The trio were transporting the illegal drug towards the state capital in a sedan, which was also seized.

The meth pills were mostly marked ’88’, an insignia the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) identifies as one of the more widespread brands likely manufactured by ethnic militants in Myanmar.
