SHILLONG, April 2: The BSF Meghalaya has confiscated a total of 1,300 bottles of Phensedyl so far in 2022.
In a statement, the BSF said that smuggling of Phensedyl continues to remain a challenge.
“The smuggling of this banned cough syrup from India to Bangladesh remains a challenge for the Border Security Force. It is a codeine-based cough syrup used as a substitute for liquor, which is strictly prohibited in the neighboring country,” the statement said.
Meanwhile, in its latest seizure, the 43 Battalion BSF troops on Friday confiscated 210 bottles of Phensedyl from the international border at South Garo Hills district.
The seized items were being smuggled from India to Bangladesh, the BSF informed.
