LAHORE: The Anti-Narcotics Department of Punjab Police successfully conducted an operation in Lahore, arresting a notorious drug gang operating in universities across Punjab.
The operation, led by the Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), took place in the Gulshan-e-Iqbal area, resulting in the arrest of five gang members, including two females identified as Shahroz, Shamila, Rafat Bibi, Muhammad Akbar, and Muhammad Afzal. These individuals were allegedly involved in drug operations within educational institutions.
The police disclosed that the suspects faced charges in multiple drug cases, and a significant quantity of Hashish and Heroin, valued in millions, was confiscated from their possession. This follows earlier actions by the Anti Narcotics Force (ANF) in June, where a drug smuggling attempt was thwarted at Allama Iqbal International Airport in Lahore.
During a countrywide operation against drug trafficking, ANF and the Airports Security Force (ASF) arrested an individual who had ingested capsules filled with drugs. In this case, four hashish-filled capsules were recovered from the suspect’s stomach at Lahore’s airport.
