Personnel of the Special Investigation Unit (SIU) Karachi on Thursday busted an inter-provincial drug trafficking gang in two raids, arresting seven of its members.

Officials reported that in the first operation, the SIU apprehended a family of five inter-provincial drug smugglers and peddlers from Magsi Goth, recovering narcotics from their possession. The arrested individuals were identified as Khuda Bakhsh, his son Abdul Ghafoor, Asma, daughter of Abdul Ghafoor, and Gul Banu, and Noor Saba. The SIU seized 5.5 kilograms of hashish from the suspects.

Initial investigations revealed that the suspects had been transporting hashish from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan and selling it to drug dealers at various locations in Karachi.
