During a joint operation by the Indian Coast Guard and ATS Gujarat, 40 kg of narcotics along with six foreign made pistols, six magazines and 120 live cartridges were seized. The FIR states that the purpose of this consignment is to provide financial support to terrorist activities in India and to provide funds to terrorist gangs in Punjab and northern India.

The NIA said that a foreign drug lord – Haji Salim Baloch Wala of Balochistan, Pakistan – had sent the consignment of arms and drugs. The shipment was sent from Poshani beach in Balochistan to Haroon in Gujarat sea.
