By Ians

Imphal, May 27: A drug trafficker possessing highly intoxicating and addictive drugs has been arrested in Manipur, officials said on Friday, May 27.

The arrested smuggler has been identified as Jilkhonthang Lumdin, officials said.


"One tablet (of drugs) is sold at Rs.1,000 in Manipur. But it is as high as Rs.2,500 in places like Delhi or Chennai," an official said.

Sources said that huge quantity of prescription drugs are smuggled to Myanmar.

The modus operandi is that prescription drugs are bought throughout the country and brought to Imphal through air cargoes, post office parcels, private couriers to fictitious names and addresses.

These are smuggled out to Myanmar where the same are processed, some other chemicals are added to them to make them stronger and more addictive.

"Once the arrested international smuggler (Lumdin) is interrogated, more skeletons will tumble out," police sources said.
