A man was caught smuggling on Tuesday 1.2 kilograms heroin at the Jinnah International Airport, Karachi.
The Airports Security Force caught the man trying to smuggle narcotics to Qatar in a foiled plastic container.
The container remained undetected by the scanning machine at first, but it was found when the security team searched the bag, the ASF said.
The accused has been identified as Jawadullah Khan from Charssada, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. He was taken into custody along with his passport.
Preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect was smuggling the drugs for his brother’s friend Shoaib, who lived in Multan.
The police are investigating the case.
