Nagaon Police's drug raid goes viral with 'Rasode mein kaun tha' trend
Guwahati: Looks like the Rasode mein kaun tha trend finally caught up to the Assam Police on Tuesday as Nagaon Police shared their capture of drug peddlers and their goods with a unique caption.
“RASODE ME KAUN THA ?
Rasode me do drugs peddlers tha.
Carton me se Livsaf and vitamins nikal diye aur CODEX and drugs chhupa diya.
Itne me Team Nagaon ayi aur dono ko utha liya.”
The Rasode mein kaun tha became viral after 24-year-old Yashraj Mukhate (engineer turned music producer) uploaded a video musical spoof featuring characters Kokilaben, Rashi, and Gopi bahu from the TV show Saath Nibhana Saathiya. Nagaon Police adaptation to the trend was spot on and it created a lot of buzz on social media.
Jokes aside, the Nagaon Police unit was able to capture two drug peddlers and was able to seize drugs that were hidden in a carton of vitamins and Livsaf.
According to director general of police Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta, this seizure comes at a time when a Special Narcotics Cell has been set up under the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to deal with the increased drug trafficking situation in the state.
Additionally, according to him that the recovery of psychotropic tablets in Assam has gone up to 274% in just the past two months. This is all due to a sustained drive against drug trafficking. Moreover, the seizure of ganja has increased to 60.04% and heroin to 53.6%.
Just this year alone the number of drug-related cases reported to the police is 601 out of which 200 have been reported from June 26 to August 30, Mahanta added in a press conference. Additionally, a total of 1,032 arrests have been made so far relating to drug trafficking and 338 of them were nabbed since June 26.
