The vehicle, earlier reported stolen in London, was found parked in the driveway of a residence in the posh DHA locality of Karachi, Express Tribune reported.
Customs was informed of the vehicle’s presence and an investigation was conducted locally to trace the stolen luxury sedan.
The investigation confirmed that the stolen car was parked inside a Karachi residence. Customs officials raided the location with a court order and seized the Bentley, Express Tribune reported.
