Customs officials impound illegal shopping bags, auto spare parts

LAHORE: Model Customs Collectorate’s anti-smuggling wing has seized Rs3.5 million worth of non-customs duty paid shopping bags and auto spare parts in two different raids at Shera Kot and Shahdara.

In the first raid at the Shera Kot, the wing seized Iranian-made shopping bags worth Rs2 million which were being smuggled to local market in the City.

Similarly, the Customs officials, foiling a smuggling bid in Shardara, impounded Mazda spare parts worth Rs1.5 million.

Official sources said that the owners of spare parts claimed that they have paid customs duty and can produce the documents.

However, the owners failed to produce the documents even though they were given a chance of proving the legal documents, the sources said.
