Karachi, April 10, 2015 (PPI-OT): The first-ever Police Station especially dedicated for penalizing miscreants involved in natural gas theft was jointly inaugurated by Feroze Shah, DIG (West) and Khalid Rahman, MD, SSGC on April 10, 2015. The police station set up by SSGC was the result of the Company’s year long efforts aimed at curbing gas theft.

DG Rangers Major General Bilal Akhtar has also shown Pakistan Rangers’ keenness to support the efforts of SSGC in bringing the gas thieves to book.
