Syed Aamir Shabbir presented evidence proving corruption and misconduct of Shaukat Ali, which caused huge loss to the national economy. In his petition, Syed Aamir Shabbir submitted that Shaukat Ali, Director General Customs Intelligence is a BS-21 officer whose crime and corruption are eroding the nation and its economy. Shaukat Ali is the officer who is politically backed to play havoc with the anti smuggling operations in the country who sits in Islamabad and still sweeps bribe money from smugglers across the country. Shaukat Ali is the one who is a civil servant of Pakistan and still holds a business visa to conduct business in Dubai. He lives in Pakistan and still makes frequent foreign visits to shift the huge corruption money to foreign destinations. Syed Aamir Shabbir alleged Shaukat Ali stumbled at every promotion and still managed to overcome the obstacles every step of his way to BS-21.
