FAISALABAD: Customs Anti-Smuggling Organisation (ASO) confiscated foreign origin tyres and artificial jewelry.
Sources told Customs Today that Additional Collector Muhammad Saeed Asad received information that non-duty paid foreign origin tyres and artificial jewelry would be smuggled into Faisalabad through illegal way without payment of customs duty and taxes.
He immediately constituted a team comprising Superintendent Tanveer Raza Naqvi, Inspector Muhammad Munir, Farhan Frank and Sepoys Muhammad Naeem, Muhammad Khalid, Afzal Hussain Muhammad Ashraf and Liaqat Ali.
The ASO team intercepted a passenger bus near Motorway Kamalpur Interchange Faisalabad and and recovered foreign origin tyres and artificial jewelry that were brought into Faisalabad from Lahore.
The team asked the owners Muhammad Siddique to produce the documents regarding legal import of the tyres and rims but he could not do the same.
The ASO team seized the recovered items under Section 2(s) read with SRO 566(1)/2005 Section 16 18 of the Customs Act 1969 and forwarded the case to Customs Adjudication for further proceedings.
