ISLAMABAD, May 27 (Xinhua) -- Pakistan's Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) said on Saturday that it had foiled four separate bids to smuggle over 844.5 kg of drugs in total in the South Asian country.

According to a statement, the ANF launched four operations in different areas of the country and arrested four smugglers besides seizing the drugs.

In one of operations, the ANF acting on an intelligence tip-off conducted a raid and foiled an attempt to smuggle drugs from the southwestern provincial capital of Quetta to the southern province of Sindh.

An ANF team chased a pickup vehicle bearing a fake official identification and recovered 700 kg hashish and arrested a driver who was wearing a fake official uniform, said the statement.

The anti-narcotics police have registered separate cases against the accused and launched investigations to trace drug networks.
