Public sets fire to seized drugs

IMPHAL, Apr 1: Around 500 Women and other volunteers destroyed phensidyle and banned drugs by setting them on fire at Yairipok Yambem under Yairipok police station of Thoubal District at around 2.30 p.m. on the second day of Yaosang on 28th March.

According to information received from police, the said drugs were seized when the children of the locality who were ready to collect money during  Yaosang stopped a Tata Magic vehicle in which some persons were traveling.

On hearing about the incident, a team of Yairipok PS went to the scene of the incident but there was a great confrontation between the public and the police when the public made an attempt to burn the drugs along with the vehicle. Police along with additional forces even resorted to blank firing in a bid to control the mob.

Police narrowly seized the vehicle but the public set the drugs on fire on the spot. The persons who brought the drugs absconded from the scene of the incident taking advantage of the melee.
