Pakistan Navy confiscates hashish worth Rs2.5b near Ormara
KARACHI – Pakistan Navy on Thursday confiscated around 1000kg of hashish worth over 2.5 billion rupees near Ormara in the open sea, the Radio Pakistan reported.

According to Navy, the intelligence-based operation (IBO) operation was conducted in collaboration with anti-narcotics force.

The seized contraband has been handed over to anti-narcotics force for disposal.

The operation reflected the Navy’s commitment to monitoring the marine boundaries. It was the result of a complex and risky raid involving surveillance and analysis in the area and conduct of special operations.

Last month, the naval forces seized about 2,000kg of hashish, worth over $30 million, during an intelligence-based operation in Balochistan. The cache of drugs was being transported via sea near Pasni, said a statement issued by the navy’s media wing.

In 2018, the Navy Ship ASLAT seized five tonnes of hashish valued in millions of dollars while operating in the North Arabian Sea. The operation by PNS ASLAT had been carried out while undertaking Maritime Security Operations in the Pakistani Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).
