Jaipur/Jodhpur: A man allegedly involved in smuggling of the US-made cigarettes and protein supplements and absconding for past one year has been arrested by the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI).

Rajesh Saini was called for an interrogation yesterday by the DRI officials, and was arrested after the interrogation in Jaipur, a DRI official said. He had been absconding since the seizure of the goods from the Customs Depot at the Thar Dry Port in Jodhpur in April 2016.

 

Saini's company, General Trading, had imported the consignment under the guise of glassware from Dubai through the Pipavav Port in Gujrat but the DRI, acting on a tip off, seized the goods in Jodhpur before it was cleared by the Customs, the official said.

Today, Saini was produced before a court in Jodhpur, which sent him to jail till April 27. According to the official, he had formed General Trading for the smuggling purpose and imported the goods for the first time.
