In a major narcotics haul, Border Security Force (BSF) troopers seized 1,385 kg of marijuana worth Rs 2.8 crore in Tripura and arrested three drug peddlers in connection, officials said on March 27.

A BSF spokesman said that acting on a tip-off, the troopers led by senior officials during a special drive against trans-border smugglers recovered the contraband, hidden under the surface of the house of a drug kingpin in the border village at Sidhai.

BSF Tripura is committed to thwarting the attempts being made by trans-border criminals and smugglers by taking all possible proactive measures and it frequently confiscates huge quantities of contraband, a BSF statement said.

The BSF has recently further tightened its vigil along Tripura’s 856 km international border with Bangladesh to curb the trans-border smuggling and various crimes.
