Acting on a tip off about a suspicious sheep shipment, a security team headed by Major General Hamid Al Dawas, Assistant Undersecretary of the Ministry of Interior for Criminal Security Affairs, and Brigadier General Mohammad Qabazard, Director of Combating Control, was tasked with monitoring the consignment closely. Upon its arrival at Doha Port, the live sheep were traced to individuals tied to a criminal network involving three Asian nationals.
