PUL-I-ALAM (Pajhwok): Police on Wednesday claimed seizing around 1,100 kilograms of hashish in central Logar.

Maj. Qari Mohammad Wara, senior police official, told Pajhwok Afghan News the smugglers were transporting hashish in a Prado vehicle. The smugglers wanted to freight the hashish from eastern province to western provinces.

Hasibullah Stanakzai, head of provincial council, said Azri district road had turned a peaceful route for drug smugglers. “The smugglers pay huge amount to Talibaninfo-icon to create insecurity in the district so they would smuggle the drugs easily through several districts of Logar,” he added.

He said that security forces should work out a comprehensive strategy to control drugs peddling in the province.

According to Logar police, they had apprehended the drug smugglers several times in recent past in Azri district.
