Pakistan & EU: 27kg heroin recovered from PIA plane.

Karachi—Pakistan International Airline’s (PIA) maintenance crew on Wednesday discovered 27 kilograms of heroin on board a PIA aircraft. The heroin was concealed in lavatory panels, and was discovered while routine maintenance was being carried out at the PIA hangar at Karachi’s international airport. The aircraft had arrived from Lahore on the evening of May 24, and was expected to fly onwards to Europe, but was instead sent to the hangar for routine maintenance. It is pertinent to mention that this is not the first attempt to smuggle illegal drugs using similar means.

The authorities are aware of the method used by the smugglers but have yet to make any arrests. The narcotics were confiscated by Customs and Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) officials at Karachi airport. An investigation into the incident has been initiated.
