In a major crackdown on illicit drugs, authorities in Tripura seized a substantial quantity of dry cannabis, weighing in at 753 kilograms. The operation, led by officers from the Sonamura Police Station in collaboration with DIB personnel, was conducted in the Sepahijala district following credible intelligence, confirmed Jayanta Kumar Dey, the officer in charge of Sonamura Police Station.

The raid targeted the residence of Ashadul Haque (35) in Anandapur under Sonamura Police Station's jurisdiction. Despite Haque's absence, authorities discovered 16 plastic drums filled with the illegal substance during the search. A case has been filed under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, highlighting the gravity of the offense and the authorities' determination to combat drug trafficking networks.
