    QUETTA: Balochistan Customs has been established to curb smuggling bids, especially from the border areas of Afghanistan as the province produces 80 per cent of the world’s drugs.

    “Drugs worth more than Rs2 million have been seized and two smugglers arrested at Balili check post,” said Customs Collector Ashraf Ali while addressing a press conference at Customs House on Tuesday.

    He was flanked by additional collector Zubair Shah, Superintendent Saeed Baloch, Deputy Superintendent Ghulam Sawar and Hayatullah Durrani.

    He said two days back 1,500 kg of drugs worth millions were seized.

    Ali said acting on a tip off that a huge cache of drugs will enter the country from Afghanistan on Tuesday, security had been tightened. During checking 476 kg of charas was recovered from secret compartments of a truck. The truck was seized and two smugglers arrested.
