ANF seizes 585kg of morphine
QUETTA: The Anti-Narcotics Force acted on a tip-off and raided an area in a deserted mountainous region in Balochistan to seize 585 kilogrammes of morphine, an official said on Tuesday.
The morphine was seized near Dalbadin, 350 kilometres west of Quetta, on Monday where smugglers had dumped the drugs, said ANF spokesman Captain Mohammed Ali.
No suspects were present at the time, and there were no arrests, he said.
Drug seizures are common in Pakistan, which straddles a smuggling route from Afghanistan’s poppy fields to markets in Europe and the Middle East. ap
