Title : ‘Indian Acetic Anhydride for the Golden Triangle and the Golden Crescent Regions’

Authors : Haq, M. Emdadul

Abstract : Despite rivalries between the two countries, Indian chemical laboratories and Pakistani drug traffickers have developed a strategic partnership for producing illicit heroin. The underworld trade relies on the production of acetic anhydride (AA), an essential chemical component heavily used in the refinement of raw opium into heroin. The chemical supplies from Indian laboratories/factories along with the border continue to Myanmar & Afghanistan evading international monitoring.
