District administration foiled a bid to smuggle wheat to Sindh and confiscated 700 bags of the grain during an operation on Monday.
The food grain department under the supervision of district food controller conducted a raid at Pirowall Chowk and captured two trucks loaded with 700 bags of wheat.
An inter-province gang was reportedly going to smuggle the wheat to Sindh despite a ban imposed by the government. The suspects attacked the food department team and escaped from the scene, however, one of them was arrested later, officials said.
The arrested suspect was identified as Balaaj who was allegedly an official of Sindh police, food grain department sources said.
