The NSCN (IM) on Thursday destroyed contraband heroin, IMFL and pharmaceutical drugs worth around Rs. 2 crore seized from Naga inhabited areas over a period of time in presence of public at Doyapur junction on the way to Camp Hebron.
According to NSCN (IM), the seized contraband and IMFL that were destroyed include heroin (1kg), rum/whisky (40-50 cases), cough syrup (45 cases), spasmo proxyvon (400 boxes), nitropam (1 box) and relipen (30 boxes). The drugs and IMFL were seized with coordinated efforts of the NSCN (IM)’s Crime Suppression Department (CSD) and town commands of respective areas.
NSCN (IM) functionaries said the pharmaceutical drugs and tablets were seized mainly in the commercial hub from Dimapur railway station vicinity and raids on pharmacies and go-downs and IMFL from raids on restaurants and lounges. With regard to heroin, the seizure was made at Noklak in Tuensang district after some NSCN (IM) members posing as prospective buyers nabbed the drug dealers.
NSCN (IM) sources also informed that the accused and offenders were let off after paying fine and strict warning that they should not indulge in such anti-social activities.
Besides kilonsers (ministers) tatars (MPs) and other NSCN (IM) functionaries, village council members, student and youth organizations and women groups of the neighbouring areas and villages and members of Naga Women Hoho Dimapur, witnessed and took part in destruction of the seized drugs and IMFL.
In a brief speech, NSCN (IM) kilonser L David said it was unfortunate that Nagas are slowly losing the culture of hard work and dignity of labour and that most people are resorting to earning money the easy way by involving in drugs and IMFL business. The Kilonser assured that the NSCN (IM) would continue to check such illegal businesses in order to stamp out the menace of drug and alcohol abuse from Naga soil. He also urged the public to extend cooperation for common good.
Meanwhile, queried on possible involvement of some NSCN (IM) members in the “Liquor syndicate”, NSCN (IM) functionaries said that if there is any NSCN (IM) member in the liquor syndicate, then the CSD would deal with the issue and inform the higher ups of the NSCN (IM) for prompt and necessary action.
