Malaysian national held after recovery of cache of arms at Karachi Airport

The Airport Security Force (ASF) arrested a Malaysian national after recovery of cache of arms and ammunition as he attempted to board a flight back to his homeland from Jinnah International Airport Karachi on Saturday.

According to details, Khairul Mohammad, 20, had arrived in Karachi a week ago. He traveled to Peshawar where he reportedly bought four pistols, eight magazines and bullets before having them concealed in a microwave oven and his shoes to avoid detection at the airport.

However, his stash was detected when his luggage was passed through scanners while he tried boarding a Thai Airways flight.

According to ASF sources, the suspect was handed over to intelligence agencies as they suspect he may have been abetted by facilitators in both Karachi and Peshawar.
