    No idiot will dare to import vehicle under disguise of machinery unless he has adequate support from politicians.

    I know what will happen next. The politician behind this racket will use his influence and if necessary, threaten the officers who involved or coming with to the terms with them and release all the so called machinery and bicycles. A mammoth share of profit will go the politician who renders his service.
    These entire vehicles will soon join the derby chaos of the Sri Lankan road very soon.

    Actually, Guess there was no politician behind the racket. If not, this would have never been an issue for customs
