NCB probing ‘unusual’ NE drug route

Drug peddler claimed the drugs came eastward from Guwahati rather than along the traditional route that begins from Myanmar.

The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) is investigating a drug trafficking route that, according to officials, would mark a “new and unusual” trend if discovered.

Anti-narcotics officials in Mizoram were recently left flummoxed by the testimony of a drug peddler, who was arrested after the seizure of the largest consignment of methamphetamine in Mizoram so far.

He claimed the drugs came eastward from Guwahati rather than along the traditional route that begins from Myanmar. The Mizoram Police’s Special Narcotics squad and BSF troops had on January 30 seized 14 kg of the party drug worth Rs 2.25 crore from a man in Aizawl.
