ARY News reported on Monday that Karachi police said they had arrested four people who were involved in smuggling diesel from the Manghopir area that hadn’t been paid for.
The police arrested four people and then took away two trucks carrying more than 1,900 liters of Irani Diesel, according to the details.
A case had been filed against the people who were arrested; their names were Asghar, Fida Hussain, Barsat, and Abdul Qadir.

Earlier, the Medina Colony Police in Karachi stopped a major attempt to smuggle millions of dollars worth of goods that were not supposed to be there.
Someone who was involved in the smuggling operation was arrested during the operation on the Hub River Road, and 170 bags of illegal goods were found.
