The Citizens Police Liaison Committee (CPLC) has written a letter to the Federal Board of Revenue’s (FBR) Benami Zone, sharing with it details of luxury vehicles registered in the name of people other than their real owners.
The CPLC said that it received hundreds of plaints from citizens who said that vehicles registered in their name don’t belong to them.
Many complained that vehicles they sold out are still registered in their name.

Swinging into action, the FBR’s Benami Zone has started an investigation into the data provided by the CPLC with several people already issued notices. It said the vehicles whose ownership is not ascertained can be impounded.
