BARA, 15 July: The custom clearing agents of Khyber Agency on Friday staged protest demonstration against Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) over faulty internet service in Torkham.

The protesting custom clearing agents said they will block imports and exports of all kind of equipment if internet service was not restored by the end of July.

All Custom Clearing Agents president Hayatullah Sinwari said while addressing the protest demonstration in Torkham Bazaar that internet service was out of order in Torkham for the last many months due to which their work has come to a standstill. He said the whole system of Customs work is dependent on V-Book system which cannot operate without internet. He said they waste three to four days for clearance of just one vehicle due to lack of internet. He said the clearing agents are facing a lot of difficulties due to unavailability of internet. He said several complaints have been sent to concerned officials, but no action has been taken to address the issue.
