FAISALABAD: Airport authorities said Friday they had foiled a bid to smuggle contraband to the United Arab Emirates via a private airline and arrested a suspect before he could board the aeroplane.

The authorities said they had also recovered millions of rupees worth of contraband from the Dubai-bound passenger here at Faisalabad International Airport. The man had hidden his one-kilo heroin stash in a secret compartment of the bag.

The arrested suspect, along with the recovered drugs, was handed over to the Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF).
