SSGC’s pursuit of gas theft miscreants continues to gain momentum, with more than 1,045 illegal connections removed in the Company’s franchise areas during a fresh set of raids. The Theft Control Team of the Customer Relations Department and Security Services and Counter Gas Theft Operations teams went full throttle against gas theft miscreants in Karachi’s Gulshan-e-Jamali, Maymar Hijri Zone, North Karachi. Gulberg, Nazimabad, Bin Qasim, Korangi and Landhi removed 915 illegal connections from households that had extended gas supply arrangements from existing meter and service points through rubber pipes. Theft claims are being raised by SSGC to recover the pilfered amount.

Concerned raiding parties in Hyderabad Quetta, Nawabshah, and Larkana cracked down on the residents who were stealing gas through underground and overhead theft clamps and removed more than 130 illegal connections. In many cases, fake meters and illegal service valves were also removed. Theft claims are also being raised accordingly.
