Operation Narcos: RPF recovered narcotics worth Rs. 7 cr in June

Hyderabad: In the month-long pan-India drive Operation Narcos conducted in June 2022, narcotics worth Rs. 7.40 crores were recovered by the Railway Protection Force (RPF). Around 165 persons were also arrested during the special drive.

Under the operation, RPF intensified checks in trains and identified black spots across the country in coordination with the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) and other law enforcement agencies to target drug peddlers.

"Indian Railways plays a leading role in the transportation of passengers and goods and has the widest network in India, that is why long-distance trains are often used by offenders to smuggle narcotics into different states by disguising drug carriers as common passengers. Thus, it becomes very challenging for the security agencies to stop this flow and prevent railways from becoming a conduit for illegal transportation of narcotic drugs," said the RPF.
