Drug ring crippled with Iranian kingpin held

KUALA LUMPUR: Police have put a major dent in the illicit drug trade in the country with the capture of an Iranian drug kingpin.

The Special Tactical Intelligence Narcotics Group (Sting) which made the bust yesterday had earlier arrested two Nigerians in Bukit Jalil and seized 9.4kg of syabu.

No other details were available.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar tweeted his congratulations to Sting on the arrest via his official Twitter account @KBAB51 yesterday.

Syabas lagi STING @PDRMsia berjaya berkas Kingpin Dadah warga Iran yg sangat di kehendaki sebentar tadi. Bebaskan Negara dari dadah!” (Well done again to STING @PDRMsia for apprehending a highly wanted Iranian drug kingpin moments ago. Free the country from drugs!)

He sent the tweet from the the 34th Asean Association of Chiefs of Police Conference in Manila, Philippines.
