A Bentley Mulsanne that was stolen from London, United Kingdom (UK), has been recovered by the Collectorate of Customs Enforcement (CCE) in Defence Housing Authority (DHA) Karachi.

According to Geo, the British intelligence agency reportedly informed the CCE, Karachi, through reliable sources that a grey Bentley Mulsanne, V8 Automatic, with the VIN numbers SCBBA63Y7FC001375 and CKB304693, which was stolen from London, was parked in DHA, Karachi.

The conduct of the nation’s various agencies has been under intense scrutiny following an extraordinary incident in which a stolen car from London was found in Karachi thanks to information provided by the UK intelligence agency.


To check the accuracy of the report, the CCE team has mounted strict monitoring at the mentioned place. The car that was discovered parked within the house’s car porch was found during a physical search by the department.

When the light grey fabric was removed, a grey Bentley Mulsanne with the Pakistani registration number BRS-279(2020 Sindh) was discovered at the back of the vehicle, and a white handcrafted number plate with the letters BRS-279 was discovered at the front.

The vehicle’s chassis number, however, matched the information provided about the stolen car. As a result, the department has detained the owner and the car for additional inquiry.

The vehicle’s owner revealed during the opening stages of the investigation that another person had sold the vehicle to him and had taken full responsibility for obtaining the necessary clearances from the relevant authorities.

On the basis of his information, the department also detained the individual who identified himself as a broker and revealed the identity of the primary offender, who is still at large.

The registration of such a pricey vehicle required NOC from Pakistan Customs, receipt of duty and tax payments, and selling approval from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, according to sources in the customs department.

Surprisingly, the Sindh Excise and Taxation department registered this stolen car without following all the legal procedures, proving that Sindh Excise officers were involved in these illegal acts.

The case has been filed, and further investigation is being conducted to bring the guilty parties to justice.
