The raid led to the recovery of 192 SPSPHEN (tramadol hydrochloride acetaminophen dicyclomine hydrochloride capsules) and 740 orange-coloured tablets weighing 71.11 grams.

“We have registered a case under the NDPS Act, with all legal formalities being observed after the arrest. We are also investigating the entire process and are hopeful of nabbing more members of the same supply syndicate,” WGH SP, Dr M.G.R Kumar said.

One of the suspects Christon was forwarded to the Court, whereas the other suspect is undergoing treatment after testing positive for COVID-19.
