SSGC’s Chief of Counter Gas Theft Operation Brig Mohammad Abuzar (R) said that gas theft is intolerable as it is a crime against the community. He further added that ‘Operation Grift’ will continue until all incidences of gas theft are eliminated. He appealed the people to help SSGC in its fight against the menace of gas theft that is also causing issues such as low gas pressures and shortage of gas.
