Meth tablets worth Rs 6.84 lakh seized in Aizawl

By Correspondent

AIZAWL, Nov 18 - Aizawl district police special branch today seized 5,676 tablets of methamphetamine worth Rs 6.84 lakh here on Thursday.

A woman, Ramnunsiami, 42, who claimed to be a resident of Zawngin village in eastern Mizoram and Sangkima, 53, who claimed to be from Rengdil village in western Mizoram, were arrested in this connection. They have been booked under ND&PS Act.

The seized meth tablets are marked R-17 and smuggled from Myanmar. Mizoram, which shares a 404-km unfenced border with Myanmar, serves as a two-way route for cross-border drug trade based in Myanmar.

The meth factories in Myanmar are partly fueled by pseudoephedrine smuggled out from India mainly through North East. �Pseudoephedrine is brought from other parts of India and smuggled out to Burma through our State, which is then used to make methamphetamine and other derivatives which in turn is smuggled across the world,� said an Excise & Narcotics department official.
