Karachi: ANF foils bid to smuggle heroin
KARACHI: The Anti–Narcotics Force (ANF) claimed seizing 375 kilograms of heroin from a container at the Qasim International Container Terminal on Tuesday.
A spokesman for the force said officials were carrying out a routine check at the terminal when they discovered 375 kilograms of heroin of fine quality in a container.
The container was loaded with 448 large-size cartons, each containing 12 oil filters, and 1,113 small-size cartons, each having 40 filters. The narcotic was tactfully concealed inside the filters. The consignment was booked for Uganda, Africa. Initial investigations have resulted in the arrest of five people.
