Karachi, December 13, 2019 (PPI-OT): Sui Southern Gas Company’s Security Services and Counter Gas Theft Operations (SS and CGTO) Department pulled out all the stops in bringing gas thieves to justice in its franchise provinces of Sindh and Balochistan through regular raids and prosecution. The SS and CGTO team secured yet another prosecution success against the culprits stealing gas. The other day, three individuals involved in gas theft were convicted by the Honourable Gas Utility Court, Larkana. Each culprit was fined Rs. 10,000 and would face 15 days additional imprisonment in case of default.

On the same day, Sindh High Court dismissed a bail application of a culprit for directly stealing gas for commercial purposes at a hotel in Hawkes Bay, Karachi. Another raid, jointly carried out by Intelligence Wing along with SS and CGTO Police in Society Zone, Central Region identified 28 houses involved in bulk gas theft in an apartment building in Bahadurabad. Gas supply was immediately disconnected and claims against culprits were raised.

SSGC is committed to continue its fight against gas thieves and will see to it that they will be punished for their misdemeanour. SS and CGTO Department will double its efforts in the coming weeks and intensify crack down on those miscreants who are depriving SSGC’s loyal customers from this natural resource.
