Mizoram - trapped in deadly cross-border drug trade

A major surge in seizures of Pseudoephedrine in Mizoram reveals that the hilly frontier state of India has become a key player in the international clandestine “Party Drug’ trade based in Myanmar providing cross-border manpower and facilities to the nefarious operations. Mizoram is in the neighborhood of the dreaded Golden Triangle.

The fact that many arrested persons happen to be bona-fide citizens of the state unlike earlier when Mizo organizations held the Burmese migrants mainly responsible for drug smuggling has sent alarm bells ringing across law enforcement agencies.
