Law enforcement agencies thwart smuggling operations in Balochistan

The Frontier Corps Balochistan (North), in collaboration with Customs and other agencies, has undertaken multiple operations to thwart smuggling activities across different regions of Balochistan.

During six anti-smuggling operations in Mastung, Nushki, and Dera Murad Jamali districts, the law enforcement agencies successfully curtailed the smuggling of various prohibited items.

A total of 11,100 kilograms of sugar, 30,000 kilograms of urea fertilizer, and other prohibited items were seized during the operations, effectively disrupting the illegal smuggling networks.

The confiscated items included cigarettes, gutka, cloth, tires, vehicle oil, and various other goods with a total estimated value in the millions of rupees.

Smugglers were found concealing these illicit goods in trucks and passenger buses as part of their modus operandi. The seized items have been handed over to customs authorities for further action.

In response to the crackdown, smugglers and their sympathizers have resorted to blocking roads in protest, demanding the release of the seized items.

According to sources, FC Balochistan conducted inspections of passenger buses during their operations, leading to the discovery and seizure of significant quantities of sugar, urea fertilizer, and other prohibited items.

Undeterred by the road blockades and protests, FC Balochistan is determined to continue its effective anti-smuggling operations in the future, demonstrating a commitment to curbing the menace of illegal smuggling activities in the region.
