Bentley Mulsanne worth Rs. 6.2 crore stolen from London found 5,000 miles away in Pakistan

Nearly 5,000 miles from its home in London, a luxury Bentley that had been stolen was discovered in the Pakistani port city of Karachi.

The Bentley Mulsanne V8, the brand’s largest and most expensive handcrafted sedan, is the company’s flagship vehicle and is valued at more than £240,000 which is equal to 6.5 crore without the duty tax.

Authorities in Karachi were able to find a bungalow in the city thanks to a search and tip from the UK National Crime Agency.

Officials entered the house armed with a court order and discovered the Bentley Mulsanne parked in the driveway.

The Federal Board of Revenue Collectorate of Customs in Pakistan claimed in a statement that it had learned the whereabouts of the gray luxury car via “reliable information” provided by a “friendly country.”

Based on the information, we set up a surveillance, obtained a search warrant, and discovered the automobile in the drive wrapped in a light grey cloth.

The car, which was discovered to have falsified registration plates, including one that was handcrafted, had been transported to Pakistan using fictitious paperwork issued by a European ambassador.

By using the vehicle’s chassis number, authorities were able to identify it.
According to officials, individuals responsible for the theft neglected to remove or turn off the Bentley’s tracking tracker, which allowed investigators to determine its precise location.

When pressed to provide legal documentation, the Pakistani owner responded, “The vendor told me he will clear all liabilities and papers with pertinent authorities by November.”

The car was then seized by customs, and it is now parked in a facility.

A police inquiry has been opened into the falsified import paperwork and the loss of $1.3 million (£1.12 million) in taxes to the exchequer.
