Model Customs Collectorate (A&F), Peshawar at Customs Station, Torkham foiled an attempt to smuggle arms and ammunition to Afghanistan in an export consignment. A twenty-two-wheeler trailer loaded with cement bags was scanned at Torkham. The scan report highlighted abnormal images.
The consignment was then put to a thorough examination which led to the recovery of 120 pistols of assorted brands and 43500 rounds. The driver of the vehicle has been arrested and FIR is being lodged. Arms are embossed with foreign brands that look to be locally made.
Further investigation is underway.
