RAWALPINDI: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa visited Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) headquarters here on Tuesday. The COAS was given a detailed operational briefing regarding genesis of ANF and its contributions for controlling drug-trafficking in Pakistan.

While interacting with the officers and staff, the COAS said that drug peddlers and those involved in its production are a threat to national security and relentless enemies of humanity. He said that drug money is being used for promotion of terrorism and therefore, it is important that drug dealers are dealt with iron hand.
