“In an anti-narcotics operation carried out by @karbianglongpol at wee hours, a vehicle was intercepted based on actionable intelligence and upon thorough checking, 685.65gms heroin and 3.118kg YABA tablets (over 29,400 tabs) were recovered,” he posted on X.

YABA tablets are illegal in India as they contain methamphetamine, a Schedule II substance under the Controlled Substances Act.

The items were being transported from a neighbouring state and two people were apprehended, Sarma said. (PTI)
