The raid was conducted on a tip-off regarding sale and purchase of smuggled mobile phones.
The shopkeepers strongly resisted and protested against customs officials and raised slogans against them. Rangers’ contingent controlled the situation and avoided a use of force.
Speaking to media, president SAddar Mobile Market Association Idrees Memon said we condemned a late-night raid without any intimation to shopkeepers.
Any of the black sheep among shopkeepers should be dealt under the law, he demanded.
