The arrest of Tahir Butt, 45, was made by a team of Thai Interpol, Crime Suppression Division and immigration police after a tip-off from Pakistan Interpol that a Pakistani man was to travel by air to Thailand with cocaine capsules in his stomach.

After being arrested, the man was sent to the Police Hospital for an x-ray scan, which revealed that there was nearly 2kg of cocaine in capsules in his body.

Earlier this month, Thai police arrested a Pakistani national wanted in his country for the arson of a textile factory in Karachi to demand for protection money.
