In a big seizure at the Islamabad International Airport, the Airport Security Force (ASF) on Tuesday foiled an attempt to launder a huge amount of money by recovering $79,480 from a Doha-bound passenger, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

According to the ASF personnel, Shehnaz Shah had cunningly concealed the amount in his clothes, which he had put in a bag. 

The suspect was later handed over to the Customs officials for interrogation.
