KARACHI: The high authorities of Pakistan Customs have yet to compile data of missing containers loaded with arms and ammunitions from its database as the next hearing of the ‘missing containers case’ is to be held in Supreme Court of Pakistan, Islamabad on Nov 11 (Monday).

The sources in Customs House told Customs Today that the authorities concerned have tried their best to compile all the data as per the directives of apex court, but they do not have enough record of the missing containers.

The sources further informed this scribe that the senior officials in Customs House conducted several meetings in order to find ways of collecting proper and complete data of the missing containers.

It had been revealed before the court that the containers of smuggled arms and ammunitions had been entered Karachi and also sold out in the city. It had also been exposed that there are 39 entrance and exit points of the city through sea, among those only seven points guarded by Pakistan Customs.

The Supreme Court, during the hearing at Karachi Registry on Nov 1, had directed the officials concerned of Pakistan Customs in its interim order that they would present the complete record of the missing containers since 2007 before court in the next hearing.
