Cops Bust Cops in Pakistan Hash Hauls

Bill Weinberg



On two separate occasions last week, agents of Pakistan's Anti Narcotics Force raided the offices of another elite police division, the Anti Violent Crime Cell, in the port city of Karachi—seizing large quantities of hashish and heroin.

First, Dunya News reported last Wednesday that ANF agents arrested an AVCC agent at his office and confiscated 137 kilograms of hashish. A drug suspect who was said to have been "illegally detained" by the AVCC was also found at the office and presumably released.

The next day, the Daily Pakistan reported that the ANF again raided an AVCC office in the city, this time recovering 66 kilograms of hashish and two kilos of heroin.

The Daily Pakistan report emphasized that "security agencies are in full swing to eliminate drug mafia from Karachi"—a drug mafia that apparently has co-opted a good chunk of the local constabulary.
