The Border Security Force has seized 290 grams of heroin, innovatively concealed in a cylindrical coupling pin, near the border fence in Ferozepur sector here. The device, which is 33 cm long with a diameter of 4 cm, was found yesterday by the troops near the Wan border outpost. With this recovery, a total of 91.941 kg of heroin has been seized this year. Smugglers are trying to stay one step ahead of security forces by using new ways to push drugs.
