In the same fashion, a passenger was detained by ANF personnel at Bacha Khan International Airport Peshawar and 139 capsules filled with heroin were recovered from his stomach. The passenger was the resident of Islamabad and was going to Bahrain from flight GF-785. 

In another operation conducted near Ring Road Peshawar, the ANF personnel foiled the bid of smuggling hashish into Punjab and seized 37kg and 200 grams of hashish, hidden in the freezer, from an Afghan resident. 

Separate cases have been registered against all the accused under the Anti-Narcotics Act and further investigations have been started.
