Gilgit, November 9: The Supreme Appellate Court of Gilgit – Baltistan has directed the law enforcing agencies to be more vigilant against entry of Non – Custom Paid (NCP) vehicles in the region. A sanction has also been imposed on entry of NCP vehicles into Gilgit – Baltistan.
The SAC also directed the law ministry of GB to legislate for regularization of the NCP vehicles already present in the region.
The government departments who are using NCP vehicles, which in most cases are smuggled on stolen vehicles brought to the region from Khyber – Pukhtunkhwa, have also been directed to regularize their vehicles by June 2011.
The decision came after days of hearing of a Suo Moto case in which the constitutional status of GB also came under discussion.
