Islamabad: The Federal Board of Revenue, taking cognizance of cases of mis-declaration and fraudulent import of automatic weapons by unscrupulous importers and clearing agents, has directed all its Customs Collectorate to be extra vigilant while examining these imports.
These directions have been issued in the light of three different FIRs lodged by Model Customs Collectorate, Lahore, against these importers and clearing agents who had tried to import automatic weapons by miss-declaring them.
The FBR has also started an independent investigation into the allegations of involvement of customs officials in these mid-declarations and fraudulent imports of automatic weapons.
