Karachi, February 07, 2014 (PPI-OT): ANF Karachi Seaport Team confiscated a container at Pakistan International Container Terminal (PICT), Karachi and recovered 85 Kgs of fine quality Heroin. The container was loaded with 3000 crates of oranges, destined for Malaysia.
Heroin was placed in 17 crates, each having 5 Kgs of Drug-packs concealed as packing material. The concealment was quite deceptive due to placement of Drugs in only 17 crates out of 3000, as well as similarity of packing material for whole consignment. ANF faces challenges in checking of perishable consignments due to time-bondage and quantum of flow.
In this case 2 persons have been arrested. The case has been registered in ANF Police Station under CNS Act and further investigations are under process. It is pertinent to mention that ANF Karachi Seaport Team has met successive accomplishments in recent past. Since Nov 2013, ANF has seized 5.86 Tons of Heroin from containers at Seaports of Karachi. These Drugs amount approximately Rs 4092 Million in international market.
