Suspended Manipur cop arrested for drug trafficking

Mohammed Kashim Ali, a suspended Manipur Police constable accused of being the kingpin of an interstate narcotics gang, was nabbed by the Delhi Police Special Cell on Thursday in Churachandpur district. Ali is accused of selling high-grade heroin worth crores of rupees on the black market. It should be mentioned that earlier this month, militants ambushed an Assam Rifles convoy in Churachandpur, near the Myanmar border, killing seven persons, including 46 Assam Rifles Commanding Officer Col. Viplav Tripathi, his wife, son, and four other soldiers.

Ali's involvement in the heroin trade has been under investigation since two members of his suspected cartel, Iqbal Khan and Mohammed Ishaq, were detained in July. The two were apprehended in the national capital with a large consignment of 10 kg heroin worth Rs 40 crore on the international market.
