Earlier on September 10, the Hailakandi police conducted a successful raid targeting the illegal trade of Burmese supari.
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.
The market value of the seized Burmese supari is estimated to be around Rs 8 lakh.
