“However, the smugglers managed to escape taking cover of standing paddy crops and darkness. During search of the area, 10 packets (about 10 kg) of contraband, two magazines of an AK-47 rifle and one PVC pipe (approx 12 feet long) were recovered,” he added.

The heroin is valued at Rs 50 crore in the international market.
