  • Description

    Black Sadik, the "king of Hashish" one of the most wanted man in Turkey, was captured this week after a rendezvous at a crosswords in Central Anatolia with narcotics agents disguised as roadworkers.

    The agents took up their positions at a petrol station at Yalvac, a small town not far from Afyon, a major centre of opium cultivation. From there, the leading agent made contact wit Black Sadik, offering to buy a consignment of hashish and morphine base.

    Sadik apparently became suspicious of the deal, and sent contact-men by lorry to handle the negotiations. The agents arrested the contact men, and then captured their leader in a swoop on the nearby village of Arak.

    The Turkish Narcotics Bureau said it was also planning to raid a factory in the area, believed to the biggest product of morphine base in Turkey.
