In a major operation conducted by the Palghar police on the Maharashtra-Gujarat border, two persons were arrested and a huge cache of arms and contraband worth Rs 13 crores were seized from their possession.

At least, three AK-47 rifles and some country-made arms and ammunition were seized from the accused. The police also seized Rs 80 lakhs cash and drugs including ephedrine, mephedrone, heroin, morphine and DMT (N-Dimethyltripthamine) in various quantities.
Some of the drugs like DMT are very rare and it being synthesized in India leads to questions of its abuse and manufacture in the country.
