AGARTALA, Aug 26 (TIWN): In last one month Tripura police have set a record of huge drug-seizing incidents including yaba tablets, phensedyl, ganja and arrests of more than 15 persons. Amid everyday raids of Tripura Police under ‘Nesha Mukt Tripura’, under vision of CM Biplab Deb has certainly brought positive colours for developments and drug mafias are rattled across the state but sources informed due to a section of political drug-mafias police undergoing tough battles in anti-drug mission including places like Dhanpur, Sonmaura and Agartala. According to the last report around 86,000 kg of ganja’s seizing was successfully done in last 16 months of the new Government and it started under I/C DGP Rajiv Singh’s observation and assisted by various SPs and police officers District-wise.

Also a major competitions are going on in ganja-seizing across police stations in a positive wave and hence creating hurdles for powerful ganja smugglers who have turned the state Tripura as the Northeast corridor for smuggling taking the opportunities of border areas. 

After two successful drives of police in North District led by SP Bhanupada Chakraborty and yesterday’s massive recovery of drugs have counted undoubtedly as BJP Govt success against drug-empire but such raids yet to curb 10% of the actual drug-supplies as the political mafias are active enough to rattle the Govt’s vision.

Since few years, yaba tablets have become Tripura’s most seized contrabands, results of massive illegal border business. Yaba tablets have become one of the major threats for the vision as suddenly Tripura’s yaba supply level has gone on peack. Police across astate and in border BSF jawans almost everyday seizing huge numbers of contrabands where yaba tablets are common. 

A survey says, much popular in Ganja smuggling since decades, state Tripura has now developed yaba tablets smuggling, more dangerous drug than phensedyl and ganja.

Ya ba, formerly known as ya ma, are tablets containing a mixture of methamphetamine and caffeine. The illicit use of this drug combination has caused problems in South East Asian countries. 

A section of BJP leaders’ true colour behind “Nesha Mukt Tripura” has been exposed as during random raids of contraband items, BJP’s Panchayat Election candidate himself was arrested after BSF and police found huge amounts of drugs in his home. The candidate of BJP Jakir Hossain has been arrested in a joint drive of BSF, Police at Miapara of Bishalgarh. Border area’s 110 number gate lined home of Jakir Hossain was raided, who is the candidate of BJP’s 5 number ward on July 6.

Sonamura, Bishalgarh, Boxonagar, Dhanpur areas are corridors for such activities and Hossain was although arrested, it can be understood that many smugglers like him are residing in the state, pouring cold water on Chief Minister Biplab Deb’s Nesha Mukt Tripura. However, Jakir Hossain is just a small figure but the big figures even though known to all but holding topmost positions in the party.

BJP leaders themselves told openly before media how few party heads are involved in such crimes, targeting BJP MP Pratima Bhowmik and his mafia-gang.

However, from Govt side, reportedly strict order has been given that no drug peddler should be spared regardless any political identity.
