The approximate cost of the seized foreign-origin cigarettes is Rs. 6,96,000 in the market.

The recovered items have been handed over to Customs Station, Zokhawthar, Champhai District for further legal proceedings.

Ongoing smuggling of drugs is a major cause of concern for the state of Mizoram, especially along the India-Myanmar Border.
