On this Pakistan smugglers fled away towards the Pakistan territory,  taking advantage of close proximity of International Border, cover of standing crops and darkness. BSF party carried out  thorough  search of the area in the morning and recovered 06 Pkts of heroin weighing 01 Kg each near BP No. 112/3 ahead of B S Fence. Out of 06 pkts, 03 pkts were having marking  of “555  and scorpion” , two pkts were having marking written as   “  8888 super quality” and 01 pkt was having “stamp mark of Eagle”. The value of seized heroine is apprx-Rs30 Crore/- in International market.
