Over two tons of narcotics seized in SE Iran
IRAN  - Iran's police uncovered more than 2,300 kilograms of narcotics following two separate operations in southeast of the country, a local police officer said Sunday.

Anti narcotics forces managed to seize two big consignments of illegal drugs and detain a number of the members of a smuggling cell in the two operations, said Ahmad Taheri, Deputy Police Commander in Sistan-Baluchestan Province.

The first operation took place in Saravan City, as result of which two Peugeot sedans stashed with 900 kg of opium, 327 kg of hashish and two Kalashnikov rifles were seized, according to the deputy commander.

In another operation in Nikshahr City, the forces uncovered 1.32 tons of opium, 53.7 kg of heroin and three kg illegal drugs of various types, Taheri said.

The officer also said that a number of drug smugglers were detained during the two operations.

Bordering Pakistan, Sistan-Bluchestan has one of the porous frontiers used by smugglers.
