Two Manipuri drug traffickers have been arrested along with 900 grams of brown sugar and four live rounds of ammunition in Khuzuma in Nagaland, officials said.
The seized brown sugar is valued at crores of rupees in the international market, officials said.
The drugs were packed in 60 small packets concealed at different parts of the car in which the traffickers were travelling from Manipur to Nagaland. They were intercepted along the Manipur-Nagaland border.
For a long time, Manipur has been the conduit for drug trafficking in the northeast.
