According to details, in an operation at Srai Dalda, Pir Wadhai, Rawalpindi, ANF arrested 4 famous Drug Suppliers, dislodged 30 drug addicts and completely wiped out crime localities. Search of personals/ locality resulted in recovery of 200 heroin purries weighing 450 gram. In a separate operation at Attock, ANF intercepted two motor cycles at Behar Colony, near Railway station Attock.
