On Wednesday, two drug dealers were shot as they attempted to flee the police dragnet at Tinsukia bypass near Makum.
Acting on a tip about the transportation of drugs (heroin), police stopped a Tata Nixon vehicle with the registration number AS03Z 7172 on its way from Dimapur to Roing in Arunachal Pradesh.
However, when the police party arrived, both of the vehicle’s occupants attempted to flee. Later, police pursued them and had to resort to firing to bring them to a halt.
Both of their legs had been injured, and they were taken to Tinsukia Civil Hospital for treatment.
The vehicle has so far yielded ten packets (soap boxes) of suspected heroin (approximately 110 grammes).
Action is being taken to follow up. Amar Das (35) and Upen Mili (36), both Dimapur residents, are the names of the injured drug dealers.
Speaking to Northeast Now, Tinsukia SP Debojit Deori said, “We received a secret information that two drug peddlers were coming to Tinsukia through the bypass. We intercepted the vehicle and asked them to stop. But they didn’t stop and our team fired at them. Two drug peddlers sustained bullet injuries and admitted to Tinsukia civil hospital.”
