KABULinfo-icon(PANinfo-icon): Afghan police seized 300 kilograms of hashish and detained a suspect in connection with the drugs in Spin Boldak district of southern Kandahar province on Wednesday, an official said.

The narcotics were recovered from a van in Rubat area by counter-narcotics police, said Lt. Gen. Baz Mohammad Ahmadi, deputy counternarcotics minister at the ministry of interior. The detainee wanted to smuggle the narcotics outside the country, he said.

Meanwhile, poppy crops cultivated over more than 262 acres of land were destroyed in southern Helmand province during an ongoing poppy eradication campaign over the past 24 hours, the minister said.
