ISLAMABAD, Feb. 7 (Xinhua) -- The Pakistan Navy has recovered narcotics worth 30 million US dollars during a raid in Pasni coastal area of the country's southwest Balochistan province, the navy's spokesperson said.

Some 2,000 kg of hashish were recovered during an intelligence tip-off regarding transportation of the huge cache of the narcotics via sea on Wednesday, said the official.

"The operation was executed with meticulous planning, constant surveillance and obtaining precise intelligence, which demonstrates Pakistan navy's resolve to prevent any kind of unlawful activities taking place along our coast and adjacent sea areas," the spokesperson said.

The recovered drugs were handed over to the anti-narcotics force which will destroy it later as per practice.

It was the second cache of narcotics recovered from Balochistan over the last one week. Earlier on Saturday, Pakistan coast guards recovered 108 kg of drugs from a passenger bus during a routine investigation near Hub area.
