Customs agents requisitioned the car from outside a house in Defence Housing Authority (DHA), an affluent neighbourhood in Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city.

Officers saw that the car had been fitted with a Pakistani number plate, but after verifying the VIN and chassis number, found it matched the stolen car’s ID.
The man in possession of the vehicle admitted that he knew it was stolen, reports Pakistan’s GEO TV.
The seller ‘took all the responsibilities to clear required documentation from the authorities concerned,’ according to the news website.
The website also reported that it was British intelligence who tipped off the Pakistani authorities to the car’s whereabouts.

Usama Qureshy, who is from Karachi, posted a video of the Customs agents pushing the car back and forth to get it onto the recovery vehicle.
He said in the caption that the car was found in the upmarket DHA region of the city.
DHA is a residential neighborhood was originally set up to house former members of the Pakistani armed forces, but now largely houses civilians.
The Pakistan Defence Officers Housing Authority says the suburb serves ‘as a benchmark for providing unparallel living standards in Pakistan’.
A statement released by the investigation agency said ‘credible information’ was received from a ‘national agency of a friendly country’ that the car was stolen from London.
It further added that intelligence agencies of the ‘friendly country’ pinpointed the exact street address of the stolen car to 15-B, South 10th Street, Defence Housing Authority, Karachi.
