Attempt to smuggle foreign currency foiled

ISLAMABAD: FIA Immigration Cell thwarted an attempt to smuggle $ 25,000 foreign currency abroad from Islamabad Airport.

A passenger was trying to smuggle the currency with him to Sharjah but the FIA officials spotted him at the airport and took him into custody with the foreign currency. The arrested, Muhammad Ali, works for a ‘Hundi’ dealer and intended to move this foreign currency to Sharjah, added the FIA officials.

A case will be registered against the currency carrier as rules and regulations allow to carry only $ 5,000 while travelling abroad.
