SUKKUR: Acting on a tip-off, law enforcement agencies in Sukkur conducted a joint raid on a flour mill in the Ali Wahan area and uncovered a large-scale Iranian oil smuggling operation.

The successful operation netted about fifty thousand liters of illegal Iranian oil, believed to be destined for illegal sale to PS pump owners through contractor trucks.

The Intelligence agencies, district administration, and customs officials teamed up for the successful operation.

After the raid, several truck drivers attempted to flee the scene, with seven to eight vehicles evading capture. However, swift police pursuit resulted in the arrest of two drivers and the seizure of their trucks.

Four individuals, including the arrested truck drivers, are currently in custody pending further probe, said Customs officials.
