Fake Pakistan Army Major Apprehended Smuggling 60kg of Weed in Nowshera

Excise Taxation and Narcotics Control Mardan conducted an operation in Nowshera on Sunday and apprehended a fake Pakistan Army Major who was smuggling a large quantity of drugs. The accused, identified as Iqbal Ali, was caught in possession of 60kg of weed worth millions of rupees. The contraband was packed in five sacks and concealed in his green number plate vehicle with tinted glasses.

The excise police had set up a picket on the road after receiving a tip-off about drug smuggling. When the fake major spotted the police, he tried to flee and hit the excise police station’s mobile vehicle, causing significant damage. The police eventually caught up with him near the gate of PAF Academy Risalpur after a long chase.

During preliminary investigation, the imposter confessed to having smuggled drugs to Punjab on ten previous occasions. A case has been registered against the accused for drug smuggling, damaging government property, and defaming Pakistan Army. The excise police has handed over the accused and the recovered drugs to the concerned authorities for further legal proceedings.

This incident highlights the issue of drug smuggling and the use of disguises by criminals to evade detection. It is a reminder of the need for continued efforts to combat the drug trade and bring those involved in it to justice.
