ANF seizes heroin from Cavalry Ground area of Lahore
LAHORE: The Punjab Anti–Narcotics Force (ANF) raided a house in the Cavalry Ground area of Lahore and seized heroin worth a million rupees on Thursday, reported Express News. The ANF also arrested four suspects and registered a case against them. Investigations are being carried out to find more suspects involved in the smuggling of heroin. Initial investigations revealed that the heroin seized from Cavalry Ground came from different places and was being smuggled to Britain from Lahore.
In June, UN officials had said that Pakistan provides a vital transit route for smuggling of drugs worth $30 billion cultivated in Afghanistan, and added that the drug cultivation can resurface in Khyber–Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan if the ANF is not strict in its surveillance.
