Illegal poppy plantations destroyed in Tirap district Arunachal

The Tirap district administration, with the help of the police and officials of the tax & excise department, destroyed 27.5 acres of illegal poppy fields here in Tirap district on Friday.

SP Kardak Riba said that “the drive was carried out as some villagers are still found involved in illegal poppy cultivation, despite many awareness campaigns having been conducted earlier in Lazu circle.”

The SP further said that, apart from poppy plants, “more dangerous and highly addictive brown sugar and heroin are being produced, which will have a catastrophic effect on the society, especially on the younger generation.”
