The respondents were acquitted by the Special Judge Customs, Taxation and Anti-smuggling on 232-2021 against which order the instant appeal and other identical appeals were filed against different sets of accused/respondent individuals.

It is evident from the contents of the impugned order by the Trial Court that  even actual facts were not taken into consideration, the appeal said.

“With great respect, prima facie, it seems that the impugned order has been passed as per dictates of the respondents”, the appeal said adding different law points and referring to different parts of the impugned judgment.

As per details, a cartel is involved in this mega scam which used to import steel sheets for Pakistani Territory.
