It serves as a reminder that Assam is resolute in its mission to combat drug-related issues that affect the well-being and safety of its citizens.

The seized heroin, cash, and mobile phones are now in the custody of the authorities as investigations continue to uncover the full extent of the drug network operating in the state.
