In an operation, the Hailakandi police in Assam conducted a successful raid targeting the illegal trade of Burmese supari on Saturday night.
The authorities intercepted a suspicious truck, which turned out to be carrying 39 sacks of this contraband substance.
The police, in a high-speed chase, managed to seize the superpower truck, preventing the illegal transport of the supari from Mizoram to other states.
