Even after a young boy had been killed due to drugs a few months back in Golaghat and a number of protests held thereafter, against drug abuse, penetration of such items of intoxication into the district could not be curbed. As in an instance today, police nabbed two persons along with drugs and syringes in the district.
The held have been identified as Mehmood Ahmed and Bitu Saikia. Both of them had been captured from Furkating.
In another similar incident, 45 kgs of Ganja have been seized in the Guwahati Railway Station. Reportedly, the intoxicants were being transported in three trolley bags and have been seized from (DN) Rajdhani Express. The Ganja had been brought from Shillong and would have been taken to Delhi.
