Customs recovers $46,000 from Kuwaiti national at NIIA

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Customs officials deployed at New Islamabad International Airport on Wednesday recovered $46,500 (around Rs6.27 million) from the possession of a Kuwaiti national.

The accused, Khalid al Basiti, was off loaded from a private airline’s flight 206 and taken into custody after he was found responsible of attempting to travel with over $46,000.

Customs officials said the money was confiscated from the passenger during the screening of his luggage. Basiti, who claimed he was a Kuwaiti diplomatic official, could not produce a legal document pertaining to the currency he was carrying.
