Ghayas Junejo, the son of PPP MNA Roshan Junejo, has been accused of smuggling alcohol. The liquor was seized by the police near the Hyderabad toll plaza on Tuesday, the authorities said.
The alcohol was worth Rs95 million. According to the police, the vehicle carrying the liquor bottles was accompanied by another car with a government number plate.
“The container was stopped by Customs officers at the toll plaza,” a police officer said, adding that the alcohol would have been sold in the black market for higher prices.
The bottles have been seized. The officer added that Ghayas has been involved in similar crimes in the past as well.
The police have begun a search operation to arrest the suspects as soon as possible.
