The airport security at Benazir Bhutto International Airport has arrested a suspect who was trying to smuggle 1kg of heroin from Pakistan to Saudi Arabia.
The suspect has been identified as Fazal Wahid, who was trying to transport the drug, was arrested by the Airport Security Force (ASF).
The drugs, that were hidden in a bag of oranges, come in various sizes and shapes and are used for smoking, insufflation and injecting.
This is not a new incident for the ASF as multiple bids to smuggle drugs to Saudi Arabia have been busted by the security officials before.
In a similar incident, the ASF recovered 786 grams of ice heroin from a Mardan’s resident last month who was traveling to Saudi Arabia.
Previously, another drug supplier of Mardan was caught who was trying to smuggle 1kg of ice to Riyadh in a failed attempt.
The ASF has captured many criminals in the current year that were trying to smuggle drugs into the Arab country.
