Authorities Catch Drugs Worth Rs. 18.5 Billion in a Dramatic Operation in Arabian Sea

In a joint operation, the Pakistan Navy and Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) conducted a successful operation, resulting in the seizure of a significant quantity of narcotics.

The operation, carried out in the North Arabian Sea, led to the confiscation of approximately 4,020 kilograms of narcotics (Hashish).

The estimated value of the seized narcotics in the international market is around $ 65.148 million (Rs. 18.5 billion), according to a Pakistan Navy news release.

This successful counter-narcotics operation reaffirms the Pakistan Navy’s commitment to combatting illegal activities at sea and along the coast.
