AGARTALA, Feb 10 (TIWN): One Rohit Debnath was held by police at Agartala in brown sugar smuggling suspect. He was however displaying BJP flag in front of his house and based on locals’ complaint police raided his house. Police for a whole was put in tough condition, as the locals backed by ruling party were pushing them for arrest of brown sugar smuggler, whereas the enough quantity could not be seized. Being asked by media, police denied to say anything and said, Rohit has not arrested but taken for interrogation. Tripura not only tops in narcotic consumption in the whole country according to national data, but also the narcotic consumption has increased 10% in 2018 than 2017. Govt data has revealed, ‘Even though countrywide consumption of tobacco has been decreased by 10%, but in case of Tripura it has been increased. Moreover now 55% death causes in Tripura are due to tobacco consumption. Due to unemployment rate’s increase however such illegal activities are on spike. At the same time, poverty gripped Tripura is experiencing dog-smuggling like illegal activities.

Amid Chief Minister Biplab Deb’s so called ‘Nesh-Mukt-Tripura’ slogan, brown sugar, ganja smuggling have turned more rampant. Till now police couldn’t answer about the destruction of seized drug items in Tripura.

It’s quite surprising when BJP Govt is claiming a Govt against Drug empire and arrested around 500 people in drug mafia, but till now police couldn’t end the mafia regime fully, whereas if investigation was proper then the narcotic den could be unrooted as the Govt has ruled over 10 months, raising question why drug empire has increased rather than decreasing.

Recently, BJP leaders came in verbal hate exchanges in same argument over drug smuggling centering border areas which exposed BJP’s top layers involved in smuggling.
