MULTAN: The Multan Customs Intelligence and Investigation and Anti-Smuggling Organisation (ASO) have jointly seized imported tiles worth Rs 5 million during a raid.
The intelligence and investigation has received information that a truck (PKJ-127) loaded with imported goods had crossed Dera Ghazi Khan.
Both the departments searched the truck near Ghazi Ghaat Bridge in DG Khan. The truck was loaded with Iranian ceramic tiles. The Lahore-bound truck was coming from Quetta.
Customs Intelligence and Investigation Additional Director Nisar Ahmad had formed a special team for the operation.
Ahmed said, “It was a joint effort. We chased the truck for more than 50 Km. Pak-Iran Border is the main supply line for smuggling. State need to show a strong writ to curb smuggling.”
A first information report has been lodged against the smugglers and Inspector Saleem Afzal is leading further interrogation.
