During the night of January 8-9, the BSF, engaged in ongoing efforts to combat trans-border smuggling in Tripura, successfully confiscated 7,800 Yaba tablets with a market value of Rs. 39 lakhs in the Sonamura sub-division of Sepahijala District. Additionally, six cattle were rescued, and 620 kgs of sugar and other contraband items, totaling Rs. 50.74 lakhs in value, were seized. A joint operation with Customs Agartala and Sonamura led to the search of a suspected house in Kulubari village, resulting in the apprehension of one suspect. The operation also involved the seizure of 39 packets containing 7,800 Yaba tablets.

In a separate operation on Tuesday, Tripura Police in the North district arrested two individuals and seized Yaba tablets valued at Rs 33 lakhs. The arrest took place on the western Ghat of Kalibari Dighi at Dharmanagar, where three drug dealers were intercepted while attempting to sell Yaba tablets.
