In response to a state Congress demand, Chief Minister N Biren Singh said that it is not the first time that state police are involved.
The Chief Minister reminded that during the previous government rule, as many as 28 drugs-related cases were counted from 2012 to 2016 in which state police were involved.
The investigation into the Pallel drugs case is underway.
