BOKAJAN, Aug 19: In a significant breakthrough, the police in Karbi Anglong successfully recovered a substantial amount of heroin hidden by drug smugglers within a jungle.

The incident unfolded when an SUV bearing the registration number AS 05 G 0931, traveling from Dimapur, Nagaland, was signaled to halt at a checkpoint in Karagaon on Friday. Instead of complying with the police’s instructions, the vehicle forcefully broke through the barricade and fled. Subsequently, the abandoned SUV was discovered in Dillai Tiniali under Dillai police station in Karbi Anglong. However, upon meticulous inspection, no incriminating evidence was found within the vehicle.
