    Great job. However during last couple of months, large quantity of drugs found, now where are they? Is it with government officials or sold to market.

    When the abundance of heroin in the country (having very high street values) has become so extensive, I wonder whether that could convert into our latest re-export item to earn much needed foreign exchange. Who knows, it might become our No 1 (re) export earner !!!
