125 kg heroin seized in Karachi
Islamabad, May 11 (IANS) A total of 125 kg of heroin was Friday seized in the Pakistani port city Karachi by customs officials, a media report said.
A 40-foot refrigerated container containing 5,400 bags of onions was brought for export to Malaysia at the Pakistan International Container Terminal May 9.
Scrutiny of the documents presented to customs officers led to suspicion as the exporter was new. During an examination, it was found that some bags in the container had some purple coloured pouches, which on opening were found to contain brown heroin, Xinhua reported, citing the Associated Press of Pakistan.
The clearing agent, Khalil Muqtadir, and an employee named Sajjad were arrested.
An investigation showed that the consignment was handed over to the clearing agent by two other people. An operation is on to apprehend the culprits, customs officials said.
