Imphal: Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh said the state government will continue its war on drugs, and launch a mass crackdown against drug traffickers.

Taking to his Facebook page, Singh said, “Surrender yourself now or face consequences.”

Biren Singh’s statement followed the seizure of a huge consignment of narcotics by Imphal East police and the Anti-Narcotics Task Force (ANTF) of the Manipur Police.

According to the chief minister, the state police arrested two alleged drug dealers identified as Mohammed Mujibur Rahman and Mohammed Sher Khan and recovered drugs worth Rs 1.9 crore in the local market and Rs 9 crore in the international market.

The seized items include 67,900 SP capsules, 350 WY tablets, 115 N10 tablets, 135 g of heroin powder and eight bottles of cough syrup, the police said.

The newly-formed BJP government in Manipur is set to roll out a mass crackdown against the drug traffickers in the state, informed CM Biren Singh. Police must continue to trace drug traffickers, Singh added.

The chief minister also urged the police to provide adequate security to all those people, including lawyers, who are working against such illicit activities, so they work freely without any threat (from drug traffickers, drug kingpins etc).

He added that the state will identify poppy plantation areas through satellite mapping and drone surveys.
