Karachi Customs officials arrested a Colombo-bound Pakistani national at the Karachi airport after 3.4 kilograms of heroin were found concealed in a novel manner within his luggage.

The passenger, as per his travel documents, was scheduled to board Flight No UL-184 from Karachi to Colombo, Pakistan media reports.

According to Pakistan media the suspected passenger was given a chance to declare whether he was carrying any contraband goods or foreign currency in his luggage or on his person, but he denied having anything illegal.

Since the Customs officials had solid information, they went ahead with a thorough search of suspect’s baggage – comprising three cardboard cartons and one hand trolley bag – but found only personal belongings, assorted decorative mirrors and Islamic books, or calligraphic monograms.

With all the contents taken out of the suspect’s baggage, the Customs officials’ attention was drawn to the irregular weight and structure of the cardboard boxes. “Our men cut open the lining of the cartons and found several packets of heroin powder – wrapped in corrugated paper pasted with polythene – concealed along the cartons’ bottom lining,” Custom officials told Pakistan media.

And Narco Testing Kit positively identified the drugs as heroin and the total quantity was calculated to be 3.4 kilograms, reportedly.
