DUSHANBE, August 4. /TASS/. A large transnational drug trafficking group has been neutralized on the border between Tajikistan and Afghanistan in a special operation, Tajikistan’s State Committee for National Security (SCNS) told TASS on Tuesday.
The group trafficked drugs and arms to CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) countries and then to Russia. Five smugglers were neutralized in a shoot-out, more than 300 kilograms of hashish and several units of firearms were seized, SCNS said.
"Four armed groups of Afghan traffickers that included more than 15 people tried to break through impassable areas over the last three days, but their attempts were thwarted," SCNS added noting that no Tajik officers were injured in the operation.
According to SCNS, Tajik border control officers thwarted 18 attempts of Afghan smugglers to cross the border. Eleven traffickers were neutralized, more than 650 kilograms of drugs, including 46 kilograms of heroin, were seized.
