Customs Intelligence Foils Multi-Million Rupee Smuggling Attempt

Customs Intelligence in Karachi intercepted multiple containers containing foreign liquor and various other goods, collectively valued at millions of rupees.

Acting on clandestine information, Customs Intelligence uncovered a smuggling attempt involving containers loaded with foreign liquor and assorted merchandise destined for illicit sale. Investigations revealed misdeclarations and falsified information in duty-free quotas purportedly obtained by foreign embassies, prompting authorities to launch a thorough probe into the smuggling network and those complicit in the illegal activities.

It was uncovered that smugglers exploit duty-free quotas, obtained with the collusion of certain customs officials, to clandestinely transport a range of foreign goods, including mobile phones, electronics, and premium liquor.

Sources within intelligence circles disclosed that this nefarious scheme has persisted over an extended period, implicating embassies of countries such as Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North). Recent intelligence prompted Customs Intelligence to seize goods falsely declared under the Saudi embassy's name, with attempts made to bribe customs officials.

Subsequently, the North Korean embassy disavowed any association with the confiscated goods, hinting at further revelations as investigations progress.
