One held for posessing heroin worth 3 lakh

Aizawl: One Lalrinmuana (26) was nabbed by the volunteers of the Supply Reduction Service (SRS), an anti-drug squad of the central committee of the watchdog Young Mizo Association (YMA), and seized 78 grams of heroin from him, SRS chairman J. Lalsailova said.

Lalrinmuana, also known as Paite Muana was nabbed in Aizawl on Tuesday night with 13 grams of heroin by the SRS and was handed over to the officials of the state Excise and Narcotics department, Lalsailova said.

The SRS members, who suspected that Muana was one of the main drug traffickers from Myanmar border village of Zokhawthar to Aizawl, detained his vehicle.

After thorough search, the SRS volunteers found that the gear box cover of the vehicle was modified so that a large amount of drugs could be concealed and discovered 65 grams of heroin concealed inside, Lalsailova added.

The seized contraband is worth around Rs 3.15 lakh.
