KARACHI: The Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) in its drive against gas theft conducted a number of raids in last few days in Sindh and Balochistan.

In this connection, a joint inspection-cum-raid was carried out on a factory called Denim International located in Port Qasim Karachi by the SSGC Measurement, Sales and Security Services and Counter Gas Theft Operations (SS&CGTO) departments along with SSGC Police and FIR Cell teams.

The team observed that owner of the factory was involved in unauthorized extension of gas load for both power and process connections.

It was also observed that a pipeline was illegally extended to another plot to illegally facilitate a full-fledged Re-Rolling Mill called Agha Steel Mills.

The said factory owner did not get any approval for load enhancement. In a raid carried out by the SS&CGTO Nawabshah in village Muradabad Channa near Dadu City, a culprit was caught stealing gas directly for a commercial purpose of power generation.

The connected load was found to be 250 Cft/Hr with 2.5 PSIG pressure. The team immediately removed rubber clamps and lodged claims against the culprit.

Meanwhile, a bail application of an accused Bashir Chandio was rejected by an Additional Session Judge Hyderabad.

The accused was booked in FIR no 148/2018 registered in Qasimabad's Bhitai Nagar Police Station for running his factory unit through direct line.

Another bail application of Ramzan Chandio who was involved in indirect use of gas for running his ice factory was also rejected by a Sessions Judge Larkana.
