Sindh Water Commission reprimands factories releasing toxic waste into Karachi’s drains

KARACHI: Sindh Water Commission on Saturday expressed its displeasure at the refusal of over 70 factory owners to allow Sindh Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) officials from inspecting their premises. The factories have been accused of releasing toxic industrial waste in Karachi’s drains.

Head of Sindh Water Commission Justice (r) Amir Hani Muslim issued an order to inspect all of the reported factories with a police party and directed relevant authorities to file cases against six factory owners.

Owners of the reported factories submitted an unconditional apology, during the hearing, and assured the court of complete cooperation with the authorities in the future.
