Karachi Police recently filed an investigative report with the Sindh High Court which revealed that Rs250 million worth of drugs had been smuggled from Pakistan and shipped to the Middle East and Africa by sea.
As reported Geo News, drug cartels were founded in Balochistan and Sindh. The report added that smugglers invest drug money in real estate throughout the UAE and Oman.
The report further revealed that the person’s family – to whom the drugs were sent – had been held hostage by the smugglers to ensure a timely delivery of drug money.
As per the Sindh Police investigation, network smugglers operate from Gwadar and Turbat in Balochistan as well as the Malir Karachi area.
A resident of Gwadar named Jan Mohammad alias Jaffar is said to be the culprit of the cartel.
Qambar Bizenjo, Jan Mohammad’s son, is in charge of shipping drugs to Africa and the Middle East, while Saleem Rind, Nusratullah Bizenjo and Adeeb Shah operate from Karachi, the report revealed.
According to the report, the smuggling gang had rented a bungalow in Karachi Defense Stage 7 and had held several Nigerian nationals hostage in it. The kidnapping of the same Nigerian national was reported to the head of Karachi Police on his WhatsApp.
The three Nigerians were rescued and released by station house officers (SHO) and station investigating officers (SIO) after accepting bribes. A case was registered against the two police officers and they were later arrested, the report said.
