One of the accused is a panchayat secretary, a senior official said.
Acting on a tip-off, bureau sleuths raided a hide-out in Daulatpura village and arrested Bharat Lal Dhakad and Kamal Dhakad and seized 87.38 kg of opium and 42.40 kg of opium-mixed water, CNB deputy commissioner Pramod Singh said.
Bharat Lal is village panchayat secretary.
A case under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act was registered against the duo, Singh said.
