KARACHI: The transfer orders of DG Customs Intelligence and other officers have been cancelled, FBR said on Tuesday.

FBR had transferred DG I&I Faiz Ahmed to IPR. His transfer was widely criticized because Faiz Ahmed is a very competent officer. He has been efficiently leading the anti-smuggling campaign.

Since the restrictions were imposed on imports and LCs, smuggling had increased manifold, which I&I controlled.

An official said the transfer of Faiz Ahmed was a big surprise as he had only been in the office for less than a year.
