Churachandpur police today seized 2.437 kgs of heroin while the consignment was enroute to the district from Chandel following a reliable input, sources said. A team of the district police led by Inspector N Thangzamuan OC of Churachandpur PS along with 31 Assam Rifles launched a joint operation under the supervision of Addl.

The operation was launched based on a reliable input that one Bapin of Moirang area is transporting contraband drugs to the district, said the source. At around 10.30 am, the joint team spotted a numberless Hyundai i10 white car moving towards CCpur at Kangvai and intercepted it for verification.

The detained individuals identified as Shokhogin Haokip (45) s/o Otkholun of Bethel village, Chandel district, and Mrs Tingneikim (40) w/o Shokhogin Haokip reportedly told the police that they were transporting the drug as directed by Bapin while the latter had gone ahead of them to strike a deal.

The police followed up the case, and Bapin was located at Red Cross road, New Bazar, CCpur. He was soon arrested and identified as Longjam Bapin Meetei (27) s/o L Boinao of Pangei, PS-Heingang, Imphal East.
