PESHAWAR: The Excise & Taxation Department officials were stopped by the Motorway Police while chasing a suspicious vehicle here on Thursday.
The excise officials were forced to stop during a chase on the motorway.
Officers of both departments exchanged heated words as the excise officials thought they were unnecessarily stopped during a chase which helped the culprits to escape. They claimed that they were chasing a non-custom paid vehicle while they were stopped.
“Most of the non-custom paid cars are smuggled via motorways,” they added.
They alleged that the motorway police was involved in the case as one of the escaped criminals seemed to be a motorway police officer.
