SSGC’s Customer Relations Department (CRD) conducted a raid against direct use of gas in Abdullah Goth, National Highway, Bin Qasim Town on August 12, 2014. After receiving authentic reports from reliable sources regarding illegal use of gas in Abdullah Goth, SSGC’s task force conducted a coordinated raid against gas thieves. When the team members were engaged in disconnecting the illegal gas connections, some unknown miscreants attacked on them and created a harassment situation. Such elements made hurdles in disconnection process.
During the operation, the Task force disconnected 3,500 houses, which were involved in stealing gas. All such owners of houses were using rubber pipes, which were buried underground and were connected with ‘Tee connections’ on service valves. According to a source from customer’s relations department of SSGC, 197,540 million cubic feet gas has been roughly estimated as stolen during one year, costing about Rs. 50 million.
