In a significant operation, personnel of the Border Security Force (BSF) successfully intercepted and seized a considerable quantity of Yaba tablets in Meghalaya. The narcotics substance, Yaba tablets, were confiscated in an operation carried out in an area under the jurisdiction of Ranikor police station in the East Khasi Hills district.
The BSF’s operation was meticulously planned and executed based on specific inputs regarding the illegal presence of Yaba tablets in the identified region. The focused approach resulted in the successful seizure of 1728 Yaba tablets, highlighting the effectiveness of intelligence-led actions in curbing illicit activities.
Simultaneously with the seizure, the BSF apprehended three individuals involved in peddling the illegal substances. The arrested individuals are identified as Somison Sangma (25), Jenel D Sangma (23), and Gopal Barman (27), all residents of Nokrianala in the East Khasi Hills district of Meghalaya.
Yaba tablets, a combination of methamphetamine and caffeine, have been a growing concern due to their widespread abuse and illegal trafficking. The successful operation not only prevented these tablets from entering the illicit market but also led to the apprehension of individuals involved in the illegal trade.
The BSF’s proactive stance and vigilance in curbing illegal activities along the border play a crucial role in maintaining law and order. The recent success in seizing Yaba tablets reflects the commitment of the BSF in safeguarding the nation’s security and preventing the inflow of narcotics substances.
