Around 400 tons of illegally imported goods, including food items and clothing, worth 150 billion rials ($4.24 million at current market exchange rates) were destroyed in Tehran on Wednesday, in what is said to be the largest destruction of contraband in Iran in 38 years. Meanwhile, the Anti-Smuggling Organization has put on hold its earlier decision to destroy 13 smuggled luxury cars, ISNA reported. The organization recently stepped up its anti-smuggling measures with the number of contraband cargo seized across the country on the rise.
