    MAY BE CUSTOMS HAVE TAKEN BIG LUMSUM...... ONLY CUSTOMS WILL DO FOR BIG TIMERS.... NOT FOR SMALL TRADERS...

    Although customes do good jobs, this is clearly insulting court and playing with innocent lives for money. Court should expose and give maximum punishment

    At a time when we hear about lot of people having cancer I think the courts should divulge the name of the company which imported this consignment of fertilizer.

    Either palms were greased or the consignee had political connections. Interesting to see what the Courts action will be.

    Customs officers are the scum of the earth with absolutely no morals, scruples or pride . Hope the Courts will expose and punish them.
