Wheat worth 800 million rupees disappears in Sindh

Roughly 47,000 sacks of wheat have reportedly vanished from a government warehouse in Sindh’s Khairpur district. These sacks, valued at around Rs800 million and acquired by the Sindh government, were discovered to be missing from the storage facility.

In response to this issue, the Sindh Food Department has taken action by suspending three implicated food officers. The individuals suspended include the district food controller of Khairpur, the supervising food supervisor, and the food inspector.

This occurrence isn’t an isolated case, as similar incidents have occurred previously. In 2022, a significant quantity of wheat disappeared from Sindh government warehouses in Naushehro Feroze.

Furthermore, during a meeting at the CM House on March 20, the Sindh cabinet decided to establish a wheat procurement target of 900,000 tonnes. The meeting was attended by various provincial ministers, advisors, and officials, including the new Chief Secretary Asif Hyder Shah, Advocate General, and Prosecutor General.
