Star Indian cricketer Hardik Pandya took to Twitter to issue a clarification on Monday (November 15) after reports of his 'Rs 5 crore (INR 50 million)' watch being seized at Mumbai airport went viral. The watch was seized by the customs officials at Mumbai airport after Hardik's return from Dubai post the conclusion of India's campaign in the T20 World Cup 2021 last week.Reports also claimed that Hardik had failed to produce any bill or related document for the watch which led to its seizure. However, the cricketer denied the allegations and said he voluntarily declared all items and submitted all the purchase documents.
"I voluntarily went to Mumbai airport customs counter to declare the items brought by me and pay the requisite customs duty. Wrong perceptions have been floating around on social media regarding my declaration to customs at Mumbai airport, and I would like to clarify about what transpired," the India all-rounder said.
"I had voluntarily declared all the items that I'd lawfully purchased from Dubai and was ready to pay whatever duties that needed to be paid. As a matter of fact, the customs department had asked for all purchase documents which were submitted; however customs is doing proper valuation for duty which I've already confirmed to pay.
