SUKKUR: Sukkur Customs officials seized a huge cache of smuggled gutkha and other related items worth Rs3.5 million at the Customs Check Post, Jacobabad, on Sunday.

According to officials, a mobile squad of Customs, led by Customs Officer Aziz Ahmed, found a large quantity of gutka and other related items in two vehicles. They were immediately confiscated under the Customs law.
