Rs. 15 crore fine imposed on Bentley thieves

Everyone guilty of stealing a Bentley Mulsanne was found guilty by the Collectorate of Customs Adjudication-I (CCA-I) and given heavy fines.

The case of the stolen Bentley Mulsanne made headlines in Pakistani media in early September. A Bentley that was stolen from the UK and found in Karachi, Pakistan, was the subject of the investigation. The Collectorate of Customs Adjudication-I has now ruled everyone involved in this case guilty and punished them (CCA-I).


The Collectorate of Customs Adjudication-I has designated one of the criminals involved in this case, Navaid Yamin, as a repeat offender (CCA-I).
A stolen Range Rover that was taken from the UK and found at his residence is the subject of another complaint that has been filed against him.

Navaid Yamin was found guilty by the Collectorate of Customs Adjudication-I and fined Rs. 15 crores (CCA-I). For their roles in the theft, the other two offenders, Naveed Bilwani and Jameel Shafi, have each been fined a total of more than Rs. 13 crore.


Navaid Yamin had retained the services of Naveed Bilwani in order to sell the car to Jameel Shafi for Rs. 3.7 crores. A Bulgarian diplomat stationed at the Bulgarian embassy in Islamabad imported the opulent car to Pakistan in 2019. H. E. Aleksandar Borisov Parashkevov, a Bulgarian diplomat, was listed as the owner on the vehicle’s registration.


The Bulgarian embassy’s intervention prevented the authorities from seizing the car the first time they attempted to do so. The embassy stated:

Navaid Yamin was the service staff of the mission since 2019 in terms of Act IX of 1972 Diplomatic and Consular Privileges Act, 1972. He [Yamin] is providing all kind of services to our mission at Islamabad including but not limited to importation of Diplomatic Goods from abroad and is rendering such services at our mission. Being service staff we have allowed him to use our vehicle i.e. Mulsanne V8.

However, CCA-I has proven that Navaid Yamin knowingly used Naveed Bilwani to sell the automobile to Jamil Shafi. Additionally, the CCA-I discovered that the stolen vehicle was smuggled under a diplomatic cover.
