    So where does this confiscated stuff end up in - back to market as we never hear what happened. So they should trail him and see to whom he is gong to deliver it. No wonder these half hearted and half finished inquiries go on but the drug menace remains forever.

    Making stupid comments here with no research and giving false statements about other country will not improve any thing!! you should watch your own country for what steps they are taking to stop this menace. Not every Pakistani is a drug dealer just like not every Sri lankan is a Tamil tiger! In every community you will find good
