Earlier in the day, a major police operation took place in Guwahati's Narengi that resulted in the seizure of a substantial cache of drugs.
The raid led to the arrest of a youth, Abul Hussain, who was swiftly identified as the culprit behind the drug smuggling operation.
The confiscated bag held a staggering 40 packets of narcotics, valued at several lakhs. Investigations revealed the illicit substances were being supplied from Manipur.
