LAHORE: The Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) and Punjab police will jointly launch a crackdown on elements peddling drugs across the province.
The decision to this effect was taken during a meeting between Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar and State Minister for Narcotics Control and SAFRON Shehryar Afridi in the provincial capital.
They both decided to take collective steps to eliminate narcotics from the province.
It was decided that Punjab and federal governments would initiate a joint crackdown on the elements involved in the narcotics business.
