KARACHI: The customs intelligence claimed on Thursday to have seized a container imported from China, carrying more than 20,000 kilograms of explosives.

In a statement, the department’s spokesman said that customs officials on a tip-off examined one of the containers at the godown of Karachi port and found it carrying explosives.

“The total weight of explosive stands at 22,000 kilograms,” said a statement issued by the directorate customs and investigation (enforcement). “The container is part of the consignment which was imported a few months ago from China and then two containers were seized in Peshawar. After seizure of those containers, the importer left the third one abandoned at the port and did not attempt to clear the consignment,” it said.
