KARACHI: The Pakistan Coast Guards (PCG) on Sunday seized 1,150 foreign liquor bottles and 2,500 beer cans at Tehsil Pasni in district Gwadar. After receiving a tip-off that some drug peddlers were trying to smuggle a huge quantity of liquor from upcountry to Karachi via road, a PCG team started checking motorists on the RCD Highway in Pasni.
When they signalled a loaded truck to stop, the driver of the vehicle tried to speed away, instead. The coast guards gave a chase and succeeded in intercepting the vehicle. During a search of the vehicle, they recovered 1,150 foreign liquor bottles and 2,500 beer cans.
