In Assam’s Karimganj, the state police on Monday seized 676 grams of heroin. The cops intercepted a vehicle coming from a neighbouring state and seized the drugs hidden in soap cases. Following the haul, Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma gave a shoutout to the cops in a tweet. “Great work,” he said.

On Twitter, the Assam chief minister said the soap cases “containing heroin were carefully packed inside baby wipe packets and stacked inside the sound box of the vehicle.” “Karimganj police intercepted a vehicle coming from a neighbouring state and seized 676-gram heroin packed in 52 soap cases, which were carefully packed inside baby wet wipes and stacked inside the sound box of the vehicle,” Sarma tweeted.

A video shared by the chief minister showed the police taking out the baby wipe packets from the sound box and further tearing the packets to reveal the drug-filled soap cases.
