India claims largest ever heroine consignment seizure worth Rs 2700 crore coming from Pakistan through Attari border

ISLAMABAD - India claims largest ever heroine consignment seizure coming from Pakistan through Attari border.

Indian Customs seized over 500 kg heroin, valued at around Rs 2,700 crore, concealed in a consignment of salt, officials said on Sunday.

The seizure of 532 kg heroin at the Integrated Check Post at the Attari border, some 30 km from Amritsar, was an all-time high, Commissioner, Customs, Dipak Kumar Gupta told reporters.

He said this was one of the biggest-ever seizures of heroin by any Indian agency on the India-Pakistan border and "the biggest achievement in the annals of the Indian Customs history".

The heroin, concealed in 15 gunny bags of a rock salt consignment that was coming from Pakistan, was detected on Saturday, he said.
