City District Government Lahore Environment Protection Department (EPD) sealed Sui Northern Gas Pipeline Limited’s warehouse in Manga Mandi on Wednesday. During inspection, a team headed by EPD Deputy District Officer Zahid Yunis found dengue larvae in pipes and other items kept in the warehouse, as the management was ignoring precautionary guidelines regarding dengue. A notice was served to the management under Punjab Local Government Ordinance, 2001, sources said. The EPD also sealed a tyre warehouse in Ludhar (Cantt) area. EPD sources said an old tyre warehouse was found to be a breeding ground for dengue mosquitoes, as standing water was found in the tyres.

The warehouse was sealed and a notice was issued to the owner under the Punjab Local Government Ordinance, 2001.
