KARACHI: (HRNW) The Sindh government on Wednesday directed the police and the authorities concerned to take strict action against those fuel stations that were found involved in selling compressed natural gas (CNG) to public transport vehicles.
In a letter, the Sindh transport department directed the traffic, motorway police and the concerned authorities to take action against the provision of CNG to public transport vehicles across the province.
“Provision of CNG to public transport and school vans is illegal”, read the letter. The provincial government also ordered action against the transporters over violation of the law.
It is pertinent to mention here that the Sindh High Court had barred the filling stations from selling CNG to public transport vehicles and ordered the provincial government to remove the cylinders from these vehicles.
