It may be noted that in recent times the influx of Myanmarese refugees has increased due to the Myanmar military junta’s atrocities on its civilians. Earlier on January 13, five people were arrested including a Myanmar national on the outskirts of Luimawi in Mizoram on charges of smuggling heroin.

During the operation, officials had seized a massive consignment of suspected heroin. The operation had been conducted by the CID (SB) along with Kanhmun Police Station in the Mamit district based on information of a possible smuggling bid.
