KARACHI: A division bench of High Court of Sindh (SHC) on Monday restrained the Pakistan Customs from forcing a CNG pumping station to pay Sales Tax of Rupees 2.7 million.

The today while restraining the respondent officials from securing the money, also asked OGRA to decide the issue of license to the petitioner who was represented by Haider sheikh Advocate of Franklin Law Associates under instructions from CEO Fasial Ghani.
