By PIB Delhi

On the basis of specific information, the Delhi Customs Preventive has booked a case on 20/21 January 2024, against foreign-origin cigarettes, illegally imported/ smuggled and stored.  Total numbers 12.22 lakh sticks of various brands viz. ESSE, Mond, Dunhill, Davidoff, Gudang Garam, Platinum Seven, etc have been seized. On preliminary scrutiny, on the basis of seized cigarettes, the value of these seized goods is around Rs. 2 crore, and the exact valuation of the goods is underway.

Two shops and three godowns were searched in Katra Bariyan, Nayabans, Delhi-06 locality.

During the investigation, it came to light that the activity of illegal import, storage, and supply of various brands of foreign-origin cigarettes was stored in the above-mentioned shops and godown.
