I/E POLICE CONDUCTS ANTI-DRUGS RAIDS IN KSHETRIGAO
Police raided houses suspected of selling drugs in Kshetrigao today. A joint team of Imphal East District Police and volunteers of YADA led by Imphal East Additional SP (Operations) Kh. Herojit carried out a drug raid on two houses at different locations in Kshetrigao at 10:30AM.
Police searched the residence of one Wahid in Kshetrigao and confirmed two drug users who had come to buy drugs. When the police team knocked at the door of the house, the occupants reportedly didn't open the door immediately, but took nearly five minutes to open it. The team also verified locals who were earlier arrested for drug dealing but no arrests nor drug seizures were made during the raid.
