QUETTA: Customs Enforcement Quetta has stayed its plan to create a Rapid Response Group, RRG, due to lack of funds, sources said. Meanwhile, Pakistan custom Quetta has issued official statement regarding the establishment of Rapid Response Group, set up at Baleli Custom and state Ware House Building Quetta.

It is for clarification that the said Ware House at Baleli is merely a warehouse and where Pakistan custom Quetta has shifted  only the existing mobile squads consisting of 18 sepoyes and three vehicle from Hdqrs Premises for security and operational purposes.

Chief Collector Abdul Qadir Memon, Collector Quetta Irfan ur Rehman and Additional Collector Umar Shafique have deputed this meager staff to strategic response to provide swift support to Field Enforcement Units and the Headquarters in their ongoing efforts against smuggling activities, intelligence gathering, and interdiction of illicit goods on purely temporarily basis since both Ziarat cross and Yaroo Field Enforcement Units are adjacent to Baleli State Ware House.

It is further clarified that Customs inspite of the meagre resources is trying its level best to control the smuggling activities.
