Under the 'Poppy Free Zogam' initiative of ZYA, approximately 15 acre of poppy plantation was destroyed
Located about 30 km North from Manipur's Ukhrul district headquarter, Peh villagers voluntarily destroyed a poppy in their village without any support from the state police department.
The campaign against poppy plantations would begin from the first week of November.
The NAB SP said punishments for poppy smuggling are categorised into three, based on the quantity of poppy smuggled.
On November 3, 2018, Chief Minister N Biren Singh too had declared “war on drugs”. He hoped that the state government and the security forces would strictly look into drug users and initiate stringent action against drug trafficking and peddling.
