Hardik Pandya, a cricketer, stated Tuesday that he went to Mumbai’s airport customs counter to declare his items and pay the customs duty. Pandya was returning home after India’s loss in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup group stage.
He was allegedly unable to present the invoices for his watches. Pandya, a cricketer who plays for the IPL-owned Reliance Industries-owned Mumbai Indians, has clarified the matter.
Pandya clarified that the watch is priced at Rs 1.5 crore and not Rs 5.8 crore as widely reported. He stated, “I am a law-abiding citizen and I respect all government agencies.”
However, this is not the first time that the Pandyas have been in trouble with the customs department.
