Guwahati, Sep 2 | The Assam police on Thursday seized heroin valued at around Rs 18 crore and arrested two drug peddlers hailing from Manipur and Nagaland, officials said.

A senior police officer said that 2.5 kg heroin concealed in 205 soap cases were recovered from a truck at Jorabat near Guwahati. The contraband was hidden inside the oil tank of the truck.

The official said that Dipak Sarma from Dimapur in Nagaland and Jamminlal from Manipur were arrested under the Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act.

This was the second major drug haul in Guwahati in the last one week.

According to the officials, Assam Police have seized drugs valued at around Rs 233 crore in separate incidents in the past 115 days and arrested about 1,982 peddlers.

Interested candidates can apply by filling in fields like name, email, exceptional work done in software, hardware or AI, dropping their resume in the PDF format and hitting the Apply option.

“There is no need even to have a college degree at all, or even high school,” Musk said during an interview with the German automotive publication Auto Bild about his hiring preferences more broadly.

“If somebody graduated from a great university, that may be an indication that they will be capable of great things, but it’s not necessarily the case. If you look at, say, people like Bill Gates or Larry Ellison, Steve Jobs, these guys didna¿t graduate from college, but if you had a chance to hire them, of course that would be a good idea.”
