<p>This illegal merchandise has a stunning market value of Rs. 1.10 crore. 50 soap cases had been used to hide the illegal drug. The Government Railway Police (GRP) Officer in Charge at Dimapur was then given the seized Brown Sugar so that it could be properly disposed of.</p>

<p>At the Agartala train station, a combined operation was conducted on the Kanchanjungha Express, train number 13173 UP.</p>
<p>Three people were detained while the inspection was being conducted. In addition to the arrests, law enforcement officers confiscated 788 bottles of cough medicine, with a total estimated worth of Rs. 1.38 lakhs.</p>
<p>The Officer in Charge of the GRP in Agartala was then given the detained people and the seized cough syrup so that the required legal actions could be taken.</p>
<p>The RPF of N. F. Railway performed targeted inspections and operations on August 23 and 24, 2023, to continue the campaign against contraband smuggling. Authorities were able to confiscate 936 bottles of cough syrup worth around Rs. 1.64 lakhs and 10,200 kg of areca nuts, valued at roughly Rs. 51 lakhs.</p>
<p>In addition, 48 liquor bottles worth around Rs. 7440.00 were also seized from different trains and stations.</p>
