Pakistan Navy seizes huge cache of narcotics at sea

The Pakistan Navy seized around 782 kilogrammes of narcotics at the Arabian Sea in an intelligence-based operation (IBO) with the collaboration of the Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) on Wednesday.

The drugs were loaded in the hidden compartments of a fishing boat that was successfully intercepted by a Pakistan Navy Ship, said the spokesperson.

The estimated value of seized narcotics is $235 million in the international market. The seized drugs were subsequently handed over to the ANF for further legal proceedings.

"The successful execution of the Anti-Narcotics Operation is a demonstration of the Pakistan Navy’s resolve to deter, dissuade and disrupt all illegal activities in the maritime zones of Pakistan," the spokesperson said.
