ISLAMABAD (92 News) – In an impeccable joint maritime operation, Pakistan Navy and Pakistan Maritime Security Agency (PMSA) captured approximately three tons of ‘Hashish’ worth millions of dollars from a dhow in the North Arabian Sea. The intelligence-based operation was conducted in coordination with Anti Narcotics Force (ANF).

Seizing narcotics at sea is always a risky and complex proposition owing largely to enormous vastness of the seas that entails a challenging task of seamless monitoring. Nonetheless, this maritime operation was a result of careful planning, ubiquitous surveillance and analysis of pattern-of-life of huge number of vessels in the area. The seized narcotic/ drugs were handed over to Anti Narcotics Force (ANF) for further disposal.

Successful culmination of such an intricate maritime operation signifies the maturity of unity, coordination and cooperation of the maritime forces. This also assures the nation that PN and PMSA are ever ready, vigilant and responsive forces committed in preventing the use of the seas for any unlawful purpose and to ensure free flow of legitimate commerce.

Pakistan Navy and Pakistan Maritime Security Agency would continue to remain the dependable forces shouldering the national responsibility and obligation to establish a lawful order in the North Arabian Sea.
