KARACHI:Sindh Rangers on Friday claimed to have recovered 140,000 bags of sugar worth Rs1 billion from two godowns at Islam Nagar area of Baldia town along Hub river road area of Karachi.

According to Rangers spokesperson, hoarded sugar was to be smuggled to Afghanistan via Balochistan. The spokesperson has appealed to people to immediately give information about such elements on Rangers helpline 1101 or at Rangers Whatsapp number 03479001111 by making a call or sending a short message.

The operation resulted in the recovery of a staggering 140,000 bags of sugar from various warehouses situated along Hub River Road. The confiscated bags of sugar have been handed over to the civil administration for further action.

The move marks a tough stand against those who indulge in hoarding practices that disrupt the supply chain, contribute to price hikes and ultimately burden consumers. The successful operation by the Sindh Rangers not only shows their commitment to maintaining law and order but also serves as a reminder that illegal activities like hoarding will not go unpunished.
