Dubai Customs have foiled two attempts to smuggle 34 million narcotic pills

The authority seized the illegal substances from two separate locations in an operation named 'Double Strike'.

The Sea Customs Centers Management at the Jebel Ali & TECOM Customs Centre thwarted an attempt to smuggle 32.8 million narcotic pills, which were hidden in a shipment containing foodstuff and medical equipment, coming from an Asian country.

In a separate raid, inspectors at the Deira Wharfage Customs Center, using smart customs submarines, seized 1.2 million captagon pills, weighing 227.8 kg.
