Further investigation led authorities to a chemical factory where an additional 550 kilograms of MD were seized.

The Commissioner emphasized the commitment of Pune Police to combatting drug-related crimes, stating that ensuring a drugs-free Pune remains a top priority. He warned that individuals involved in illegal activities would face strict consequences.
