07 February, 2014
KARACHI: Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) Karachi on Thursday seized high-quality heroin at a local seaport.
According to the ANF spokesman, ANF Karachi seized about 85kg high-quality heroin worth billions of rupees in the international market. Heroin was placed in 17 crates, each having 5kgs of drug-packs concealed as packing material.
The concealment was quite deceptive due to the placement of drugs in only 17 crates out of 3,000, as well as similarity of packing material for the whole consignment.
At least two people have been arrested, and the case has been registered in ANF Police Station under CNS Act. Meanwhile, further investigations are under process. It is pertinent to mention that ANF Karachi Seaport Team has met success in recent past.
Since November 2013, ANF has seized 5.86 tonnes of heroin from containers at seaports in Karachi. These drugs approximately amount to Rs 4092 million in the international market.
