Three men including two law enforcement officials were arrested at the Benazir Bhutto International Airport (BBIA) on Saturday for trying to smuggle 6kg of heroin onto a Dubai-bound plane.
One suspect, Amir Yaqoob, is a member of the Airport Security Force (ASF), while the second suspect, his brother Urooj Yaqoob, is a constable in the Punjab police.
An Anti Narcotics Force official said Urooj delivered a 6kg bag of heroin to his brother Amir through the Gammon gate of the BBIA.
The bag was to be delivered to a passenger named Shah Khalid, who was booked for Dubai on the 3:30am flight.
Khalid was also arrested when he got to the airport.
The two brothers are from Mandi Bahauddin, while Khalid hails from Nowshehra in K-P.
