According to official sources, the heroin was concealed in a dining table that was to be sent through cargo to Birmingham from Mirpur at the Rawalpindi airport.

The cargo staff while transporting the table found the heroin and later informed the Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) team.

The heroin along with the table was seized by the ANF team and inquiry was launched into the matter.
