Ferozepur, August 16

Pakistan-based operatives continue to make efforts to push drugs through the riverine gaps along the border in this sector. In the latest seizure, the troops of the 136 Battalion, BSF, on Sunday recovered three packets of heroin weighing 3.26 kg, worth Rs 15 crore, near border outpost Shameke along the zero line. Besides, a China-made pistol (.30 bore) and a magazine was also recovered.

Several such attempts have been made by cross-border drug operatives to smuggle heroin through the river route and have been thwarted by the BSF troops in the recent past. Earlier on August 1, 2.98 kg heroin was recovered near BOP Old Mohammadi Wala. This consignment was also pushed through the river channel with the help of plastic bottles tied to water hyacinth.

Till date, around 339.063 kg heroin has been seized by the BSF along the Pakistan border in the state, including today's seizure. — OC
