Border police seize 25kg of heroin in Nangarhar

Border police seize 25kg of heroin in Nangarhar

Jul 20, 2017 - 15:37

JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Twenty-five kilograms of heroin has been seized by Afghan Border Police (ABP) in the Momand Dara district of eastern Nangarhar province, an official said on Thursday.

ABP spokesman Idris Momand told a press conference in Jalalabad, the provincial capital, the police personnel intercepted a Corolla car carrying the drugs on the basis of a tip-off.

He said the drugs smugglers wanted to transfer the heroin placed in 25 packets to the Goroko area of the district. But the ABP seized the drugs, he added. However, the smugglers managed to escape.

Momand accused the insurgents of selling drugs in border areas and investing the money in conducting anti-government activities. But he promised law-enforcement agencies would frustrate the rebels’ plans.
