During the search, the law enforcement officials also stumbled upon several other hazardous substances within the premises. These included 97 packets of Chalia weighing 2190 kg, 400 kg of lime, 23 packets of cut leaves, 32 packing wrappers, four packets of powder, one pack of rubber bands, and 52 large tubs.

The arrested individuals have been charged, and an ongoing investigation is underway to uncover further details regarding the illicit operation.
