Pakistan civil aviation authority places ban on naswar in flights
*ISLAMABAD - **Pakistan civil aviation authority places ban on carrying naswar in flights.*
*The Civil Aviation Authority has declared carrying naswar during travel in planes a punishable offense.*
According to a notification of the CAA, all the airports in the country have been alerted about the ban on carrying naswar.
The notification says all Arab countries have listed naswar on the list of narcotics. It said strict action will be taken against passengers if naswar was found in their luggage.
The price of tobacco and other items has gone up recently but naswar’s rates have stayed the same for two years. This is because it is unregulated and doesn’t fall in the tax net.
