JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Drugs carried on four mules were seized and two smugglers detained in Dur Baba district of eastern Nangarhar province on Thursday, officials said.

The narcotics concealed in electronic equipment were seized by the Afghan Border Police (ABP) personnel, said Brig. Gen. Mohammad Ayub Hussainkel, ABP commander in the east.

He told a press conference here that the detainees had skillfully hidden the 26 kilograms of raw hashish in electronic business equipment and commodities on mules and wanted to smuggle them across the Durand Line.

Hussainkhel said the detainees hailing from Achin district were destined for Tirah valley in Khyber Agency on the other side of the Durand Line.
