The Border Security Force (BSF) has recovered nearly four kg of heroin along the border with Pakistan in Punjab's Amritsar sector, a BSF officer said on Wednesday.

The seizure is valued at Rs.19 crore in the international market.The seizure was made at a border outpost Ghoga, about 300 km from here.A BSF patrol noticed an abandoned cylindrical iron shaft pipe lying near the barbed wire fence close to the international boundary.A search of the pipe revealed six packets in which 3.8 kg of heroin was packed."The recent seizures, interdiction and apprehension of smugglers have given a setback to Indian and Pakistani smugglers and compelled them to conceive new modus operandi to hoodwink security agencies to clear the consignment of contraband items," a BSF spokesman said.
