Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) spokesperson, Shahbaz Islam rejected that the gas connections were being choked by the staff members. He said that so far, no official complaint has been received from customers regarding this criminal activity, however, the Company came to learn of these incidents from social media. A post surfaced stating that a particular mafia is going around locking gas meters especially at night time and leaving a fake paper claiming certain amount for the restoration of gas or unlocking of the meter along with a contact number. The Company is taking serious actions against this mafia. The spokesperson asked citizens to report on its helpline (1199 or 0323-8213346) or its official email address ([email protected]) if any person or a group demands money for restoring the gas supply.
