Agartala, September 13: In a concerning turn of events, the driver of a notorious drug smuggler has once again managed to evade police scrutiny, casting a shadow of doubt on law enforcement’s effectiveness. This incident took place on Wednesday, has prompted questions regarding the police’s ability to apprehend criminal actors.

The incident took place when the Champaknagar and Jirania police stations’ staff collaborated to conduct a vehicle inspection operation in the Champaknagar area. During the operation, the police intercepted a vehicle loaded with potatoes and recovered a staggering 42 bags of Eskuf Cough Syrup hidden within.
