Attempt of drugs smuggling thwarted at Karachi airport

KARACHI: Pakistan Customs Drug Enforcement Cell at Jinnah International Airport thwarted an attempt to smuggle 3200 grams of heroin out of Pakistan to UK.

According to Pakistan Customs spokesperson, Customs Drug Enforcement Cell’s staff of Jinnah International Airport, Karachi, intercepted a Pakistan born British passenger Zahid Maqsood when he reached airport to board Emirates Airlines flight EK-601 for Birmingham via Dubai. When the passenger Zahid could not furnish satisfactory replies to Customs questioning, his baggage comprising two hard top suitcases was subjected to examination.

The suitcases which apparently contained personal belongings of the passenger were in fact used to artfully conceal in false cavities which on completion of recovery process was found to be 3200 grams worth millions of dollars in international market.
