KARACHI: National Accountability Bureau (NAB), Baluchistan has closed the inquiry against officers and officials of Customs Intelligence, Quetta.

NAB had initiated a case against Customs Intelligence Quetta on the allegations of misappropriation of engines of seized Hino trucks and giving undue benefit by illegal clearance of used and second hand front cabins and loss to national exchequer.

Based on the findings of the final inquiry report and the recommendation of regional board meetings, NAB decided to close the case.

Director Quetta Irfan Javed known as a competent and honest officer has streamlined affairs at Directorate of Customs Intelligence, Quetta. As a result, the directorate staff made significant progress against smuggling and made several cases and seized smuggled goods worth millions.

Sources said Director General Shaukat Ali had been interfering in the affairs of various directorates and even the transfers and postings were made without the consultations of directors. It may be mentioned here that officers posted at directorates of Customs Intelligence and Investigation across the country were shuffled quite frequently due to the interferences made by the Director General.
