Additionally, an RC book, a 100 kyat note, and a 20 kyat note were recovered from the house in the name of Paojangam Khongsai s/o Songkholet Khongsai of Mantripukhri AT Line.

It is highly suspected that the accused person and the house owner is a member of an international drug cartel. The recovery of such a large quantity of illegal substances is a significant achievement in the fight against drug trafficking. Poppy seeds, which are commonly used to produce opium and other drugs, are highly addictive and can cause severe harm to an individual’s health.

Synthetic caffeine is often used as a stimulant and can lead to heart palpitations and even death if consumed in large amounts. Pseudoephedrine is a common ingredient in cold and flu medications, but it is also used to make illegal drugs like methamphetamine.

The seizure of illegal substances is an essential step in combating drug trafficking, which poses a significant threat to public health and safety. The government and law enforcement agencies must take all possible measures to eliminate this menace.

The recovery of poppy seeds and other illegal substances highlights the importance of continued vigilance in this fight. The government and law enforcement agencies must remain committed to identifying and prosecuting those involved in the illegal drug trade to keep communities safe and healthy.

The seizure of illegal substances in Manipur is a significant achievement in the fight against drug trafficking. The authorities must continue their efforts to combat drug trafficking, and it is essential to remain vigilant and take all necessary measures to prevent the spread of illegal drugs in society.
