Large quantity of diesel seized

QUETTA: Customs Baluchistan has expedited its anti-smuggling efforts in the border area of Panjgur, which is the hub of smuggled diesel trading.

Federal government has taken up the smuggling as a challenge to economy and identified scores of illegal fuel stations dealing in sale and distribution of smuggled diesel of Iran origin.

Chief Collector Baluchistan Gul Rehman and his able officers including Collector Quetta Irfan Javed and Collector Gwadar Tahir Qureshi are taking concrete measures to discourage organized smuggling.

Meanwhile, information was passed through Collector Tahir Qureshi to Additional Collector Ghulam Haider regarding movement of smuggled fuel. Deputy Collector Falik Sher formed a team led by Superintendent Saeed Baloch and coordinated with FC Baluchistan. In a joint operation with FC, Customs recovered 100,000 liters of Irani diesel worth millions of rupees along with two Hino tankers. The commodity was to be transported to inner country.

Earlier, Customs Gwadar foiled an attempt to smuggle mobile phones worth Rs13 million at Khurkhera check post. A Hino tanker was intercepted and the checking led to recovery of scores of high value mobile phones and tablet PCs.

The goods were being smuggled to Karachi.
