According to a spokesman for Pakistan Customs, the Enforcement Collectorate’s Anti Smuggling Organization (ASO) on a tip off signaled a vehicle bearing a government number plate for search at Mochko check post.

The customs officials took the vehicle in custody and recovered 348 bottles of foreign brand liquor. The approximated value of seized bottles is Rs. 6.48 million. A case has been registered and further investigations are underway.
