Drug processing lab destroyed, one arrested in Bamyan

BAMYAN: Afghan counter-narcotics police destroyed a drug processing lab and arrested one person on charge of involvement in the drug business in Afghanistan’s central Bamyan province on Friday, said a statement of provincial Counter-Narcotics police Saturday. “Acting on tip-off, the units of counter-narcotic police launched an operation in Shibarto area of the provincial capital Bamyan city in the wee hours of Friday, destroyed the lab, and arrested one person from the site,” the statement added. The police had also uncovered a huge quantity of materials used in manufacturing heroin from the site of the operation, the statement asserted. Afghan authorities have intensified crackdown on illicit drugs and those involved in the black business as security personnel have arrested over a dozen alleged drug smugglers over the past couple of weeks elsewhere in the war-ravaged country. The supreme leader of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan Mullah Hibatullah Akhundzada in a decree issued in April banned poppy cultivation and its processing and since then Afghan security forces have intensified struggle against illegal drugs.
