Nagaland Police

Dimapur witnessed a significant development in the fight against drug trafficking with the arrest of Md. Hassan Uddin, a notorious drug trafficker. The operation was a result of the relentless efforts of the Nagaland Police and is part of the larger ‘War Against Drugs’ campaign in the region.

Md. Hassan Uddin, also known as Hasan Mamu, was apprehended through a joint operation by the Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, and West Bengal Police forces. Uddin operated a medical shop in Dimapur’s Murgi Patti area, which he used as a cover for his illicit activities. The arrest came after a tip-off during another investigation, leading to a coordinated inter-state police operation.

Uddin’s method of trafficking involved using the postal services of India Post to dispatch parcels containing morphine to West Bengal. In February, the West Bengal Police intercepted these parcels in Barrakpore, seizing 2 kilograms of morphine with an estimated street value of Rs. 8 crores. This bust highlighted the clever tactics employed by traffickers and the vigilance of law enforcement agencies.

Uddin and his brother Kamal Uddin have a history of involvement in drug-related offences, making this arrest a significant victory for the police. The operation emphasises the importance of continued vigilance and the need for a strong legal framework to combat such activities.

The arrest of Md. Hassan Uddin has far-reaching legal and social implications. Northeast India’s proximity to the Golden Triangle and Golden Crescent makes it vulnerable to drug trafficking, posing a significant challenge.
