On Tuesday, the KPK police have confiscated non-custom paid cars that were being used illegally by police officials and private citizens in the province.
The reports said that the KP Inspector-General of Police Sanaullah Abbasi revealed that at least 1,600 vehicles have been recovered and handed back to the customs and excise department.
They were being misused for many years, the top cop said, adding that the provincial police department has a system of internal responsibility in place.
On January 8, the KP IG’s office had written to the home and tribal affairs department alerting it of the illegal use of non-custom paid cars by senior police officers.
It has been noted with great concern that a large number of NCP (non-custom paid) vehicles were being used by police officers on various pretexts, the letter read.
The letter further read that when a vehicle is detained, it has to be handed over to the customs and excise department through a court order, but various police officers utilized these vehicles for their personal use instead.
Some senior police officers also used these NCP vehicles, the letter stated, adding that punitive action should be taken against the officers.
