    becos there are lot of mischievers in custom. if i have to name 10 most corrupted gornment servants in the country, custom officers are #01.

    Yes. Most of the Custom officers are only in to money. Even for a genuine person cannot bring anything in a correct way. They are asking money.

    Custom officers are smart beggars.. they do their duty for the innocent people only.. not for smugglers

    Those guys who brought the cigarettes should have contacted the DOCTOR for an equitable solution. Live and let live.

    Fake or genuine both cause cancer but why do not the police arrest other fake stuff freely available on the market.
