ZARANJ/ JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Police in southwestern Nimroz on Thursday claimed foiling a big smuggling bid by recovering 250 kg heroin to Iran and detained two alleged smugglers.

The illicit substances were recovered from the oil tanker at the Abrishim Border with Iran late on Wednesday, police chief Brig. Gen. Mohammad Qasim Jangal Bagh told Pajhwok Afghan News.

The anti-narcotics force (ANF) recovered the heroin during a routine check of the oil tanker.
