SHC to hear plea for release of tankers used in diesel smuggling

KARACHI: A customs appellate bench of High Court of Sindh (SHC) fixed Nov 14 for hearing two identical Special Custom Reference Applications (SCRA’s) seeking release of Hino trucks allegedly used for smuggling Iranian diesel.

The bench earlier heard Ms Dil Khurram Shaheen advocate, counsel for petitioners who submitted that customs tribunal has ruled in favour of the petitioners. She prayed to the court to order provisional release of the vehicles as they are the sole source of income of petitioners.

The bench after hearing initial arguments ordered issuance of notices to the respondents for Nov 14.
