Illegally imported fabrics seized at Ctg port

Custom officials yesterday seized a consignment of illegally imported fabrics worth about Tk 3.36 crore at Chattogram port. The officials recovered the fabrics of Raymond brand imported under false declaration. Nur Uddin Milon, deputy commissioner of Chattogram Customs House, said “Acting on a tip-off  customs officials seized the consignment of fabrics of Raymond brand imported by Sufi Apparels Limited of Pahartali in Chattogram. Messrs Gafur Enterprise, a clearing and forwarding (C&F) agent, was responsible for releasing the consignment.”

“The company imported the consignment under declaration of importing synthetic fabric. After physical examination of the consignment yesterday the customs official found the company imported fabric for Raymond brand against their declaration of synthetic fabric. The company only paid only Tk3, 000 as revenue, as the revenue was Tk1.70 crore as they have imported fabric for Raymond brand,” added he.

The importer was trying to evade around Tk1.70 crore as revenue, according to officials of Chattogram Customs House.
