Police bust 500 kg of drugs in Golestan province

GORGAN, Dec. 04 (MNA) – The anti-narcotic police have seized 510 kilograms of hashih on the main roads of the Iranian province of Golestan.

Police Chief of Golestan Province Second Brigadier General Ruhol Amin Ghasemi broke the news on Wednesday, saying that following comprehensive intelligence activities, the police forces traced the haul of illegal consignment in Golestan province, which was coming for one of the eastern provinces of Iran.

Two smugglers have been arrested during the operation and two vehicles were confiscated by the police, he added.

The Islamic Republic has been actively fighting drug-trafficking over the past three decades, despite its high economic and human costs. The war on drug trade originating from Afghanistan has claimed the lives of nearly 4,000 Iranian police officers over the past four decades. The country has spent more than hundreds of millions of dollars on sealing its borders and preventing the transit of narcotics destined for European, Arab and Central Asian countries.
