KARACHI: A division bench of High Court of Sindh comprising Justice Aqeel Ahmed Abbasi and Justice Mrs Kausar Sultana Hussain ordered provisional release of plant and machinery imported by Dandot Cement Limited.

The bench earlier heard Barrister Faroogh A Naseem who said that in order to avoid accumulation of port and demurrage charges, petitioner is ready to secure the disputed amount of Income Tax and Sales Tax with the Nazir of Sindh High Court. He relied on judgment in two earlier orders/judgments passed in Suit No 2536/2016 and 824/2018 where in identical issues, provisional release was ordered.

As Law officers including counsel for respondent collectorate did not opposed the proposal and request, the bench ordered provisional release. The bench later adjourned further hearing for four weeks.
