JODHPUR/NEW DELHI/BIKANER :
IN WHAT is claimed to be the biggest ever drug haul along the Indo-Pakistan border in Rajasthan, the BSF has seized over 58.6 kg of heroin, foiling a narcotics-smuggling bid by Pakistani operatives, officials said on Thursday. The seizure was made by the BSF’s Rajasthan Frontiers from near the Bandli border post, Inspector General Pankaj Goomar said.
The carriers of the consignment, however, managed to slip away taking advantage of the night and harsh weather leaving behind 54 packets of the contraband, he added. “The guards fired in the direction following a warning and rushed to the spot of movement. An intense search of the area led to the discovery of 54 packets. On checking, these packets were found to contain heroin”, said Goomar.
