Customs Quetta seizes 20,000 milk-enhancement hormone injections Boostin

QUETTA: Customs Quetta staff at Quetta Airport has seized large quantity of milk-enhancement hormone injections for cattle; import of these hormones is prohibited in Pakistan after Supreme Court imposed a ban.

On the directives of Collector Preventive Iftikhar Ahmed, Additional Collector Yasir Wahab, Deputy Collector Ch. Imran Afzal, Assistant Collector Rana Umair, Superintendent Aslam Khan and Inspector Mir Qalam had tightened vigilance on the passenger cargo.

Subsequently, some suspicious bags were spotted, which had been brought from Dubai. The same were checked and 20,000 harmful injections Boostin (Korean origin) were recovered. The value of the goods is estimated at Rs60 million in the international market.

It may be mentioned here that despite a ban imposed by Supreme court these milk-enhancement hormones are being openly sold in Karachi, and almost all dairy farmers are using these.

Customs Quetta also foiled an attempt to transport smuggled goods at Saranan in Pishin and seized large quantity of smuggled goods worth Rs80 million.

Information was received through Chief Collector Dr. Zulfiqar Ali Chaudry that smugglers had gathered in Saranan and smuggled goods would be transported to inner Karachi and other cities.

Collector Preventive Iftikhar Ahmed advised Additional Collectors Jameel Baloch, Yasir Wahab, Assistant Collectors Saleem Tahir, Rana Umair, Superintendents Yunus Ata, Saleem Agha and Inspector Shahzad Akhtar to secure assistance from FC and Police and conduct an operation.

Miscellaneous smuggled goods were loaded in three buses and one truck, which were seized.
