GWADAR: Model Customs Collectorate (MCC) Gwadar has foiled a bid to smuggle 6,250kgs of plastic granule and also seized over 9,000 litres of smuggled Iranian high speed diesel (HSD) in two different raids.
Sources said that the customs officials have successfully carried out operations despite bad law and order situation in Gwadar and nearby areas. “Besides the resistance from the devious elements, the Customs Department has also controlled the law and order in the area and normalised the situation,” the source added.
The consignment of granules, worth more than Rs 1.5 million, was loaded on a bus which was heading to Quetta.
In another raid, MCC mobile squads at Jiwani and Gwadar seized more than 9,000 litres of smuggled Iranian HSD and Pakistani cigarettes along with vehicles, worth more than Rs 2.7 million.
