The Model Customs Collectorate (MCC) Quetta conducted a crackdown against Iranian patrol smugglers at various illegal patrol pumps along the Jaffarabad-Jacobabad Highway and seized more than 7,500 litres of Iranian diesel while also shutting down eight illegal pumps.
Following the crackdown, owners of the pumps along with a large number of people gathered on the highway and staged a protest. They burnt tires and pelted stones at the customs staff thus blocking the highway for traffic.
Consequently, the customs officials lodged a first information report (FIR) against the owners of the illegal patrol pumps who were found selling low quality diesel and patrol products derived the smuggled Iranian oil.
