In a relentless effort to control the menace of gas theft, SSGC continued to conduct raids in its franchise areas. Theft Control team of Company’s Customer Relations Department conducted multiple raids in Karachi’s Liaquatabad, Abdullah Goth (Bin Qasim Zone) and Mehran Town, Korangi. SSGC’s team made a combined 5,216 gas theft disconnections as the residents of these localities had extended illegal gas arrangements from the existing meter and service points through rubber pipes.

SSGC’s Security Services and Counter Gas Theft Operations (SS&CGTO) Wing along with SSGC Police raided Shah Jee Hotel located in New Chali, Karachi and arrested its owner Fareed Ullah on charges of direct gas connection.
