KARACHI: Director General Customs Intelligence & Investigation (I&I) Shaukat Ali has assigned look-after charge of Additional Director Karachi Ali Zaman Gardezi along with his existing posting of Additional Director Hyderabad.
A couple of senior Customs officers have made a mockery of the entire system as several rules and established practices are being violated while work is assigned to officers in defiance to FBR directives.
In August 2017, Director I&I Karachi Samina Taslim Zehra, on the directives of Director General Shaukat Ali, distributed work among additional collectors and interestingly Ali Zaman Gardezi was assigned certain responsibilities at directorate of Karachi despite the fact that Gardezi had been posted at Directorate of Hyderabad by the FBR.
After two months, Director General has given look-after charge to Ali Zaman Gardezi in Karachi to cover up for the on-going violations.
Shaukat Ali is said to be allegedly patronising certain unscrupulous elements and he has been victimizing officers and officials for performing their duties to the letter. Making transfers and postings is the primary tool of Director General Shaukat Ali for pressurising and harassing staff of Customs Intelligence & Investigation. Even BS-16 officers are transferred to other provinces.
