Kerosene oil smuggling racket busted

Kerosene oil smuggling racket busted

Customs Intelligence personnel on Sunday claimed to have seized kerosene oil consignments worth Rs360 million in a raid. The oil was being smuggled under the guise of white spirit by three importers for the past two years.

A spokesman identified the importers as SMD Sons Pvt Ltd and Power Industries, in Karachi, and MA Corporation, in Lahore.

The tip off was received from the Directorate General of Intelligence and Investigation, Islamabad. The task for proper investigation was assigned by I&I Custom Enforcement Director Samina Tasleem Zehra to Additional Director, Syed Ali Zaman Gardezi, and Deputy Director in Karachi.

After a thorough and discreet investigation, consignments worth Rs360 million were detained by the officials in the raid. He added that the samples were sent for testing to the Hydrocarbon Development Institute of Pakistan and they confirmed the samples as Kerosene oil instead of White spirit.
