DIMAPUR — Following the arrest of Bahar Uddin, a narcotics drug trafficking kingpin, Nagaland Police conducted searches in Dimapur at various locations to gather further evidence and incriminating materials.

During the searches, documents, bank-related papers, passbooks, multiple SIM cards (issued under fictitious names), and telephone devices (mobile handsets) were seized. Also, it has been learned that he has been involved in the ganja business since 1995.

In a press release issued by Nagaland Police on Tuesday and shared on the social media platform X, it stated that, according to available information, Bahar Uddin was primarily operating from Dimapur. His supply chain was reported to have upward procurement and trafficking links in Manipur, with downward sale linkages in Nagaland and Assam.

Multiple cases of ganja and heroin trafficking have been registered against him in Nagaland and other parts of the country by various agencies.

As per the investigations conducted thus far, Bahar Uddin procured and trafficked more than 800 soap cases of the narcotic drug heroin from various suppliers operating in Manipur over the past 6 to 10 months. Detailed investigations are currently underway regarding his involvement in trafficking narcotics in both past and current cases.

“Nagaland Police will endeavour to unearth the entire trafficking chain in this case and also in other cases,” read the statement.

It cautioned the public that while possession and carrying of illicit drugs are offences, financing and coordinating trafficking activities or assistance in trafficking by hiding drugs or proceeds of drugs, providing shelter to criminals, allowing traffickers to transfer funds, etc. are offences too.

The police, meanwhile, has lauded the Angami Public Organisation, the Angami Youth Organisation, the Dimapur Ao Youth Organisation, and other CSOs for assisting the police whenever requested.
