Sost, September 01: The Pakistan Nuclear Regulatory Authority held a three days training workshop for officers posted at Sost Customs, in Gojal Valley. The major objective of the workshop, according to sources, was to prepare the officers for checking of radioactive materials. “This is the first ever training given to officials at the Sost customs”, according to Customs Superintendent Sardar Azam.

Among participatnts of the workshop were Wazir Zulfiqar, Assistant Appraiser, deputy superintendents including Atta ur Rehman, Amin Ullah, Afzal, Ehsan Qadar Kiyani and all inspectors of the customs department.

Senior Scientific Officer, Abdul Shukur, distributed certificates among participants of the workshop. Relevant detector devices were also handed over to the customs officials for ensuring that no radio active material comes in or leaves out of the country.

Let’s remind the readers that Sost is the last town of Pakistan and commercial hub of the region, moving towards China. Sost also hosts the region’s first and only dry port, the Silk Route Dry Port.

Public circles have praised the effort and hoped that the officers working at the customers will use their expertise to diligently check the flow of radioactive materials, if any.
