KABUL, Oct. 24 (Xinhua) -- The Afghan police arrested 80 drug-related suspects during past Afghan month, authorities said on Thursday.

"Counter-Narcotics Police of Afghanistan (CNPA) and detective security organizations arrested 80 suspects, including a woman, linked to 74 cases of transportation or keeping of narcotics from various provinces during the Afghan month of Mizan," Counter-Narcotics Criminal Justice Task Force of Afghanistan (CJTF) said in a statement.

After initial investigations, the CNPA has handed over the cases to the Central Narcotics Tribunal or CNT, a special Afghan court for jurisdiction of major drug cases, the statement said.
