The Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) personnel have foiled an attempt to smuggle more than a ton of narcotics during an operation conducted in Islamabad, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Acting on secret information, the ANF team seized a vehicle carrying refrigerator containers from Balochistan to Punjab and seized over one ton of drugs.

“Two important operatives of the inter-provincial smugglers’ gang, including the ringleader, were also arrested in the operation. The recovered drugs included 1,020kg of hashish (marijuana) and 28.80 kg of heroin,” said an ANF spokesman. 

A case has been registered against the accused under the Anti-Narcotics Act while further investigations are under process.
