Meghalaya police on Wednesday night busted a major drug racket in the capital city of Shillong after a driver alerted the police.
Chief Minister of Meghalaya Conrad K Sangma in a post on X (formerly Twitter), informed about the seizure of drugs estimated to be worth over Rs 2 crore.
"A major success through Police-Public cooperation! In Shillong, a major drug bust worth over Rs 2 crore took place yesterday night. What makes this success unique is the pivotal role played by an alert Sumo driver who promptly informed the Police about a suspicious bag. Many congratulations to the Sumo driver for his quick thinking and courage. He will be aptly rewarded for his honesty,” he wrote.
CM Sangma also praised DGP L R Bishnoi for working continuously towards the state goal of 'Drug-Free Meghalaya'.
"DGP and his team have been tirelessly working to combat the menace of drug trafficking. Such joint effort is a glorious example of the importance of public cooperation to fulfil our dream of Drug-Free Meghalaya,” the chief minister said.
