In a decisive operation against drug trafficking, the Special Task Force (STF) of Assam Police executed a high-stakes raid this afternoon near the Koinadhara traffic point under the Basistha Police Station jurisdiction.

During the raid, the STF seized the following items:

  • Suspected Heroin: 40 vials with a total weight of 54 grams

  • Cash: Rs. 2500/-

The operation took a dramatic turn when one of the arrested individuals, Raju Deka, led the STF to a rented room at Koinadhara, Rajib-Gandhi Path. This follow-up action resulted in the recovery of additional items:
