Parsa, Dec. 3: Goods worth tens of millions of rupees is on the verge of damage due to over valuation by the police.

The goods were not auctioned and are rotting because of high valuation while submitting to the Customs Office after being seized from various places of the district for evading customs and while being smuggled.

As against 40 percent maximum of the whole sale price, the Nepal Police and Armed Police Force have mentioned  selling price of the goods and submitted at the Customs,  and could not be auctioned, said Chief of Birgunj Customs Office Ram Hari Aryal.

The police have neglected the written agreement in the District Security Committee that evaluation should be made by coordinating with the Customs of the goods taken under control, and goods worth over 30 million rupees including betel nuts, sukumel, biscuits and rajani gandha among others, are left in the lurch.

No one agrees to accept it in auction even if auctioned called time and again because of high evaluation, said one contractor Jokhu Saha Teli of Birgunj. RSS
