New Delhi, Apr 15 (MNN) The Indian Coast Guard have intercepted a Pakistani boat off Jakhau coast in Gujarat and seized 30 kg heroin and arrested eight Pakistani nationals, officials said on Thursday.

The government said that an input was received on April 13 regarding narcotics trafficking by Pak boat ‘Nuh’ off the India-Pakistan notional international maritime boundary line (IMBL).

A subsequent coordinated operation launched by ICG and ATS Gujarat led to interception of the boat on April 14-15 night after the vessel was inside Indian waters.

Thirty packets of heroin weighing approximately one kg each were seized, estimated to be around Rs 300 crore in the international market.

Preliminary investigations revealed that the contraband was destined for Gujarat shore. The boat along with eight Pakistani crew was escorted to Jakhau for further search and investigation.

On March 18, ICG had apprehended SLB Ravihansi with about 300 kg of heroin, five AK-47 rifles and 1,000 rounds of ammunition off Lakshadweep Island, which was suspected to have originated from Makran coast. ICG had earlier apprehended SLB Akarsha Duwa carrying 200 kg high-grade Heroin and 60 kg hashish which was however jettisoned at sea after the crew sighted ICG ships.

In the past one year, ICG has successfully seized more than 1.6 tonnes of narcotics valued at approximately Rs 5,200 crore.
