    In March, 2013 the Anti Narcotics Force (ANF) had arrested at least three people and seized three kilogram heroin from their possession.
    The trio including a woman was arrested at the Benazir Bhutto International Airport when they tried to smuggle contraband to Saudi Arabia via PIA flight (PK 741).
    The suspects, identified as Muhammad Asghar from Faisalabad, Shaukat Ali and Fatima Bibi from Sargodha, were supposedly going to Saudi Arabia for Umrah.
    A case under section CNS Act-1997 had been registered against them.

    In June 2012, around 4.5 kilogrammes of heroin was seized from a PIA aircraft in Karachi that was departing for London via Lahore and the airport staff has been identified as prime suspects.

    “This has happened a hundred times,” Customs Spokesperson Qamar Thalho had stated, while referring to the incident on PIA flight PK-787.
    Moreover, in June 2011 PIA airhostess and her husband were arrested at the Islamabad airport for possessing eight kilograms of heroin in their luggage.

    According to sources, both the airhostess and her husband were due to board the Muscat bound PIA flight PK 319 when ANF found the heroin during a luggage check.
