Maharajganj:

Psychotropic drugs worth Rs 686 crores have been seized from the home and godown of a person in the Thutibari area of Maharajganj, police said on Thursday.

The accused Ramesh Kumar Gupta is arrested, while another accused Govind Gupta is on the run.

The local police, administration and Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) jointly raided both places and seized the drugs.

Talking about the raid in a press conference, SSB Commandant Manoj Singh said, “This was a joint raid conducted along with the local police and drug Inspector. Drugs seized are worth 686 crore rupees. Some of them were sold in medical stores here and some were smuggled to Nepal since the borders are open.”

“It is a big operation, hoping that the nexus will break and youth will be able to leave addiction behind. It was a well-coordinated raid. SDM Pramod and SSB Commandant Sanjay Kumar planned the operation together,” Mr Singh said.

Superintendent of Police (SP) Maharajganj, Pradeep Gupta said that a lot of material was seized from the spot and a case has been registered against the accused.
