Non-custom paid vehicles worth millions of rupees were seized in raids conducted in Pasni, Ormara, Jiwani and other areas of Balochistan by Balochistan Customs. The worth of the seized vehicle is estimated at Rs12 million.

The crackdown has been launched in line with Prime Minister Imran Khan’s directives to curb smuggling of vehicles and essential commodities into the country, which is depriving the national exchequer billions of rupees in terms of duties and taxes.

Earlier, customs officials had said action will also be taken against car showrooms involved in trade of NCP vehicles.
