Police Chief of Sistan and Balouchestan province Brigadier General Mohammad Ghanbari said Sunday that following comprehensive intelligence activities, the police forces seized 1.425 tons of illicit drugs during an operation in Khash.

1,180 kg of opium and 125 kg of hashish and 180 kg of other drugs were seized during the operation, he added.
