On May 7, 2015 Gwadar Police raided a house in Nayabad area at 5 a.m. in the morning. The raid, led by SHO (Station House Officer) Imam Bakhsh, resulted in the recovery of a sizable cache of drugs as well as 6 Yemeni citizens. The house in question belongs to an alleged criminal named Luqman who, police says, is wanted in a number of other cases including murder charges.
During the raid, police recovered 10 kilograms of hash as well as other drugs which, the official says, are valued at hundreds of millions of rupees. The police also found an AK-47.
The recovered Yemeni citizens were found tied with chains. According to them, they had been kept as captives by Luqman and his accomplices for a period of 3 years and were frequently tortured by the captors. The alleged criminal Luqman escaped during the early-morning raid.
District Police Officer (DPO) Parvez Umrani said that the DIG had announced 10,000 rupees in cash and appreciation certificates for the officials involved in the raid. He further said the Yemeni citizens will be given in custody of Federal Investigation Authority (FIA) which will then send them to Yemen after the necessary documents are prepared.
