Safeer Mehdi, a spokesperson of the Pakistan Coast Guards, told Xinhua news agency that they received a tip-off regarding a possible bid to smuggle high quality narcotics to some foreign countries.

Acting on the intelligence report, the Coast Guards launched an extensive operation in the area and recovered 350 kg of hashish hidden in the ground at a beach in Jiwani.

The Pakistan Coast Guards handed the drugs to the anti-narcotics force who will later destroy them as per their schedule, Mehdi added.

No arrest was made, but security forces have increased vigilance and monitoring in the area in efforts to get clues of drug peddlers.
