Foreign made cigarettes worth Rs 65 lakh seized in Patna

Patna  The Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) on Saturday seized foreign-made cigarettes worth Rs 65 lakh from a train in state capital Patna, police said.

"DRI sleuths seized foreign made cigarettes from North East Express train at Patliputra Railway Station," a police official said.

However, no arrest has been made so far in this connection.

According to police officials, the DRI team raided the train on a tip-off that a huge consignment of foreign made cigarettes was on way from Guwahati to Anand Vihar Railway Station in Delhi by North East Express train.

The DRI officials have identified two men behind this racket and are likely to arrest them soon.
