The Border Security Force (BSF) has seized one heroin (total weight 29 kg), 430 grams of opium, three pistols, three magazines and 63 cartridges worth Rs 145 crore from the outskirts. Under the cover of thick haze, Pakistani smugglers have transported consignments of heroin to five places in the Indian territory adjacent to the border within two days. Recently there is an assembly election in Punjab, so the demand for heroin has increased.
Due to the haze, smugglers of both the countries have become active for smuggling on the border. On Tuesday and Wednesday, BSF has seized four consignments from Ferozepur sector and one from Amritsar's Attari border. According to BSF officials, patrolling of the soldiers has been increased along with the fencing on the border due to dense fog.

On the other hand, according to intelligence sources, from the three places from where one packet has been found, this proves that Indian smugglers have been successful in taking the rest of the packets from the outskirts. These days there is a thick fog on the border. Smugglers of both the countries are taking advantage of this. About 485 kg of heroin has been seized from the Indo-Pak border last year.
