Benapole customs suspend three officials for tax evasion links

Benapole Custom House has suspended three customs officials and cancelled licences of two clearing and forwarding agents for their alleged involvement in tax evasion worth Tk 30 lakh.

The customs officials are Nashedul Islam, revenue officer; Shahidullah Ibn Noman and Asaduzzaman Asad, assistant revenue officers, and the C&F agents are Medina Enterprise and Mahibi Enterprise, said Benapole Customs Commissioner Belal Hossain Chowdhury.

The C&F agents released the goods of Alhamdulillah Enterprise, although Chowdhury and Additional Commissioner Neyamul Islam ordered to stop the import, as they got a tip-off that the Dhaka-based importer is trying to evade tax through misinvoicing.

The four trucks of Alhamdulillah Enterprise were supposed to carry 665 packages of motor parts and other products from India.

The C&F agents secretly delivered the consignment with the connivance of the revenue officers, said Chowdhury.
