RAWALPINDI: The Anti–Narcotics Force (ANF) arrested a passenger from the Benazir Bhutto International Airport (BBIA) here on Tuesday and recovered heroin–filled capsules from his stomach, sources in the ANF said. Sources said that an ANF team intercepted a passenger, Amjad Abbas, resident of Khushab, when he was proceeding to Muscat via Abu Dhabi by a PIA flight — PK–217. They said that the suspect was taken to a hospital for x-ray of his stomach. The x-ray showed heroin–filled capsules in his stomach, which he had swallowed before his departure. More than 50 heroin–filled capsules were later recovered from his stomach.
