According to media sources, a high-end Bentley car that was stolen from London a few weeks ago has recently been discovered in a bungalow in Pakistan’s Karachi. Following a tip from the UK National Crime Agency that the stolen Bentley Mulsanne automobile was parked in a home in the city’s affluent DHA district, the Collectorate of Customs Enforcement (CCE) in Karachi, Pakistan, carried out a raid.
According to a report in Pakistani media, those responsible for the theft neglected to remove or turn off Bentley’s tracking tracker, which allowed UK authorities to pinpoint the car’s precise location using sophisticated tracking technology. Officials discovered a Bentley with a Pakistani license plate and registration during the raid. Upon closer examination, they found that vehicle’s chassis number matched the information provided by UK police regarding the stolen car.
When the home’s owner failed to provide the necessary documentation, the car was seized. He was detained along with broker who sold him the expensive car. Authorities said that the vehicle’s registration was fraudulent. According to sources cited by PTI, those involved in the scheme were able to bring the car into Pakistan using the credentials of a senior official from an east European nation. A tax of more than 300 million Pakistani Rupees was allegedly avoided thanks to the smuggling of the stolen car, according to the FIR that customs officials filed. An official stated that the main organizer of the entire scheme is still being sought after.
