“I was really surprised to see the tax amount because even the shoes cost less than this. These spikes are worth PKR55,000 and someone gifted me as a help.”I don’t have shoes as my old pair is expired now. I would like to request the government to please sort out this issue,” she delivered this message through a video.

According to the athlete, the representative of the courier service informed her that the tax is imposed by the authorities and is required on imported goods.
