The Pakistan Navy seized round 782 kilogrammes of narcotics on the Arabian Sea in an intelligence-based operation (IBO) with the collaboration of the Anti-Narcotics Power (ANF) on Wednesday.
The medicine had been loaded within the hidden compartments of a fishing boat that was efficiently intercepted by a Pakistan Navy Ship, stated the spokesperson.
The estimated worth of seized narcotics is $235 million within the worldwide market. The seized medicine had been subsequently handed over to the ANF for additional authorized proceedings.
“The profitable execution of the Anti-Narcotics Operation is an indication of the Pakistan Navy’s resolve to discourage, dissuade and disrupt all unlawful actions within the maritime zones of Pakistan,” the spokesperson stated.
