Customs department sleuths yesterday seized 24,000 bottles of banned Phensedyl cough syrup worth over Rs 37 lakh from a Tripura-bound truck at the Shillong Bypass, officials said. Acting on a tip off, the sleuths waited for the truck that took off from Changsari railway head in Guwahati last evening supposedly carrying FCI rice to Agartala, they said.

“The truck carrying 257 bags of rice, also had 81 cartons of the banned cough syrup hidden inside the rice bags. After passing the Bypass toll gate at Diengpasoh village, it was stopped at about 3 AM and then seized,” a senior customs official said.

He said the consignments were bound to Tripura where it was supposed to be delivered to its handlers in Bangladesh. According to the officials, the seized drug is worth over Rs 37 lakh in the market. The driver of the truck was arrested and booked under relevant sections of the NDPS Act.
