The Counter Narcotics Police of Afghanistan (CNPA) and detective security organisations have arrested 112 drug-related suspects during past Afghan month, authorities said on Wednesday.

“The arrested suspects were linked to 92 cases of transportation or keeping of narcotics from various provinces during the Afghan month of Jadi,’’ Counter-Narcotics Criminal Justice Task Force of Afghanistan (CJTF) said in a statement.
