Diphu: In a major breakthrough, the Karbi Anglong police have apprehended two people including a woman who is alleged to be the kingpin of an inter-state drug cartel based in Nagaland. Police have seized a huge quantity of drugs and a Maruti Alto car from their possession. Karbi Anglong police have reportedly been tracking her for the past couple weeks before she was arrested on June 17.
According to the sources, the seizure consisted of 164 packets containing 2.125kg of fine quality heroin worth over Rs.7 crore. Karbi Anglong police had been tracking “Didi” for the past couple of weeks before she was arrested on Thursday.
According to SP Karbi Anglong, Pusparaj Singh, “Recently, we learned that “Didi” was on the lookout for new customers as her former customer base eroded due to the persistent seizures and arrest made by Karbi Anglong police. We took this as an opportunity and placed our source as a customer and a deal was fixed. She came to deliver the drugs and landed in our trap. It was a difficult task convincing her.”
Reportedly, it was also disclosed that ‘Didi’ alone was responsible for over 60% of all the illegal drug entering Assam through NH-36 and NH-39. Singh said police eventually managed to obtain her phone number and place her surveillance.
