“Assam govt is focus on zero tolerance against crimes”: Guv on R-Day celebration

Guwahati: Over 3,600 people were arrested for drug trafficking, and 520 for cattle smuggling in Assam in 2021, Governor Jagdish Mukhi said on Wednesday.

Unfurling the National Flag on the occasion of the 73rd Republic Day here, Mukhi said that the Assam government is committed to fighting crimes in all forms.

He said that Assam government has zero tolerance against any kind of crime – be it drug trafficking, crime against women and children, human trafficking, cattle smuggling or cybercrime.

The Governor said, “A total of 64.16 kg of heroin, 18,590.74 kg of ganja, 69.33 kg of opium, 31,64,726 banned tablets and 1,55,851 bottles of cough syrup along with Rs 2.35 crore in cash have been seized, and 2,152 cases under NDPS Act registered against 3,543 people in 2021.”

He also informed that the state police’s Criminal Investigation Department (CID) was developing ‘Drugs Free Assam’ mobile application through which anyone can provide information about drugs to the police.

Speaking on cattle smuggling, Mukhi informed that some 7,109 bovine animals have been rescued while 520 people booked in 685 cases from January to October last year.

Mukhi said that 98.35 per cent of border fencing along the India-Bangladesh international border in Assam has been completed.

On Wednesday, Assam celebrated Republic Day in a very low–key manner where no cultural programs were allowed. Only security personnel with double doses of the COVID-19 vaccine participated in the ceremonial parade.
