By Our Correspondent

Agartala, February 14, 2020: Rubber traders are very much worried as a section of Ganja smugglers have started using the vehicles carrying rubber sheets to outside the state to smuggle out Ganja clandestinely and demanded police escort to prevent these menace.

It is a recent trend as the state government has launched a massive operation against all kind of narcotics and almost all the means of transportation of this proscribed item has been sealed due to close surveillance of the security forces. The Rubber Dealers Association got worried after several such incidents were detected by police recently.

Subrata Saha, secretary of the Association said it is a matter of great concern for the rubber dealers as it may hamper rubber traders severely though they, in any way, are not involved in any such activities. Addressing a press conference in the Agartala Press Club he said Ganja smugglers in collaboration with the drivers of the vehicles are loading the illegal items in the mid-way.

He said the rubber dealers are being subjected to various kind of harassment whenever any such vehicle is detained by the police. They are to face questions and transportation of the consignment is also getting delayed causing heavy loss in term of business.

He said the vehicles starts with rubber sheets but the proscribed items are being loaded somewhere on way. He said only a police escort from Jirania to Churaibari can prevent such illegal business.

It may be recalled that Tripura is the second highest producer of Rubber in the country after Kerala and the entire product of the raw rubber is being sent outside the state. 'If police harassment in the name of searching Ganja continues it will severely affect the rubber business in the state', he said expressed hope that the state government will take some immediate step.
