Islamabad: The Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) has detained 10 criminals as part of its continuing national campaign to combat drug smuggling and has found more than 157 kilograms of illicit drugs on Thursday.

A Noshehra-related suspect was apprehended with 100 ecstasy tablets during an operation in Islamabad near the Khanna bridge, an ANF spokesperson claimed.

A further raid was place at a freight office close to Hawks Bay Road in Karachi, and about 250 ecstasy tablets were found there.

Earlier, the Airports Security Force (ASF) foiled an attempt to smuggle ice heroin to Jeddah by arresting a passenger going for Umrah while conducting an operation at Islamabad Airport.

According to the ASF spokesman, Muhammad Imran, a passenger who was going to Jeddah via Istanbul to perform Umrah, had soaked three Ihram towels with ice solution.

The spokesman said ASF personnel recovered 5.448 kg of liquid ice heroin during the search of the passenger's luggage using their professionalism.
