Two Belgian nationals have been arrested at the Tribhuvan International while trying to fly to the Thai capital Bangkok with 15 kg hashish, an illegal drug.
According to the Narcotic Drug Control Law Enforcement Unit (NDCLEU), Naya Baneshwor, Lucien Robert Jean Pierre Paschael and Karine Paschael were held by the Anti-Narcotics Aviation Squad stationed at the TIA with the help of airport security on Saturday. They were to travel to Bangkok by Thai Air flight TG 320 carrying the narcotics.
The NDCLEU said the two are currently undergoing investigation.
Recently, a Japanese national was arrested with 1.5 kg heroine at the TIA while flying to Bangkok.
