KARACHI: A division bench of High Court of Sindh (SHC) on Thursday ordered issuance of notices to the respondent custom officials for Oct 29 in a petition filed by Rawal Industrial Private Limited.

Ms Dil Khurram Shaheen advocate appearing for the petitioner company maintained that her clients seek assessment under section 25 of the Customs Act 1969 as no criteria could be applicable.
She also prayed for the rekease of the trucks under section 81 on deposition of bank guarantee.
The bench after hearing initial arguments put custom officials on notice for Oct 29.
