KABULinfo-icon(PANinfo-icon): A primary court sentenced three individuals to 20 years in jail on charges of smuggling narcotics, an official said on Wednesday.

The primary court of the Criminal Justice Task Force (CJTF) convicted the men who had been arrested during a joint operation in southern Helmand province, the CJTF spokesman told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Ahmad Khalid Mowahid said the convicts, of ages 23, 19 and 41, wanted to transfer the drugs from Nad Ali to Khan Nishin district when counter-narcotics special force and the US Navy SEALs arrested them.
The CJTF has convicted 177 people on similar charges over the past three months.
