Karachi: 85,000 sugar bags seized
KARACHI: A team of the City District Government Karachi (CDGK) carried out a raid on a warehouse in the Gulbai area on Wednesday and seized 85,000 sugar bags. Each bag contained 50kg of sugar.
The raid was carried out by the city government team and the area police near a weighbridge in the Gulbai area.
The executive district officer (revenue), Mustafa Jamal Qazi, who carried out the raid, told that his team found some watchmen who later allowed the city government team to enter the premises.
“We broke open the lock of the warehouse and found innumerable bags of sugar there,” he said, adding that legally he could only seal the warehouse and not confiscate the whole lot and release it out for the benefit of the people.
He said that no magisterial powers had so far been delegated to the revenue officers of the city government.
