Government Railway Police today seized 30kg ivory from the Down Brahmaputra Mail at Guwahati railway station.
GRP personnel, out on a routine check on the train around 11.45pm, stumbled on a VIP suitcase from which nine pieces of ivory weighing 30kg was found. The suitcase was found abandoned in a sleeper coach.
No arrests could be made as the courier must have fled on spotting the policemen.
