Karachi: Heroin seized
KARACHI: The Pakistan Customs seized 500 grams of heroin from a lady passenger at the Jinnah International Airport on Thursday.
According to Qamar Thalho, Chief Media Liaison Officer, Customs officials intercepted a Pakistani lady passenger Zubaida when she came there to board a Bangladesh Airlines Flight bound for Dhaka.
Since the lady could not satisfactorily explain the reason to visit Dhaka, the Customs staff took her for a body X-Ray examination. This exercise confirmed the presence of Heroin filled capsules inside her body.
The passenger was instantly taken to custody and hospitalized at the JPMC where the medical team recovered 55 Heroin capsules from her body.
