Drugs Found on London Bound PIA Flight

Police in the UK have confirmed that they have found an “unspecified quantity of heroin” on a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight that flew to London from Pakistan.

National Crime Agency of Britain has been assigned the responsibility to investigate the incident regarding the recovery of narcotics from PIA flight PK-785, which was flying from Islamabad to London.

According to media reports, no arrest has taken place thus far but the passports of the crew members have been confiscated. This is in case they are found complicit in the transport of heroin on PK-785.

The aircraft has made its way back to Pakistan with a new crew.

About The Incident

Mashhood Tajwar, PIA spokesperson, confirmed the incident. He said that the flight was thoroughly searched for more than two hours after its landing in London. Furthermore, 14 crew members were also searched and were released after being detained for nearly two hours.

Tajawar claimed that there were no drugs on the flight and they plan on taking the matter up with the relevant authorities.

According to PIA passengers, the police searched specific places as if they were tipped about the information beforehand.

This isn’t the first time flight PK-785 was found at the center of controversy. Some time back, drugs were found on the same Boeing-777 during repair work.
