Police destroy over 18,000 cannabis plants at Kamalasagar


BY TC News Desk

Agartala, November 10: The police launched a massive operation to destroy cannabis plantations in the Kenania area of Kamalasagar Assembly on Friday. The raid was conducted by a joint team of Madhupur Police Station, Bishalgarh Sub-Divisional Police Officer and CRPF personnel. They destroyed more than 18,000 cannabis plants in 27 plots.

The operation was part of the ongoing drive to curb the illegal cultivation and trade of cannabis in the state. The police have identified various locations where cannabis plantations have been grown and are planning to conduct more raids in the coming days.

According to Bibhas Ranjan Das, OC of Madhupur Police Station, the cannabis growers have suffered a huge loss as the police destroyed their crops before they could harvest them. He said that the police will not spare anyone who is involved in this illicit activity and will take strict action against them.

Kamalasagar assembly constituency was once known for its large-scale cannabis cultivation, but the police have claimed that the situation has improved in recent years. However, some farmers still resort to growing cannabis in remote areas, hoping to evade the law. The police have appealed to the public to cooperate with them and inform them about any suspicious activities related to cannabis.
