QUETTA: Collectorate of Customs Enforcement and Compliance (E&C) has impounded huge quantity of smuggled goods worth Rs19 million during two Intelligence Based Operations (IBOs) near Dalbandin.
The seized smuggled goods include tea, foreign origin cigarettes and used tyres. The value of the seized goods is Rs10 million approximately. These goods were to be smuggled to in-country.
Collector Irfan Javed, Additional Collector Umar Shafique and Deputy Collector Zuhaib Sandela appreciated the efforts of ASO team comprising Superintendent Saleem Mandokhel, Inspector Asghar Kakar and others.
Sources said that action will be taken against the smugglers who had brought non-customs duty paid goods inside the country and no concession would be given to anyone, as the authorities are trying to get the people to bring the goods into the country by paying customs duty instead of smuggling them. This will not only benefit them, but also bring revenue to the government.
