KARACHI: Commissioner Karachi, Shoaib Ahmed Siddiqui Monday ordered Deputy Commissioners (DC) to take strict action against the milk sellers involved in profiteering to ensure the sale of the commodity on the rates fixed by the government.

Dairy farmers have increased fresh milk prices by Rs10 per litre in Sindh including Karachi.

According to President Dairy Farms Association, milk prices have been hiked due to increase in milk enhancing injections three times.

It may be noted here that Lahore High Court has imposed ban on such milk enhancing injections in animals, however, there is no such ban in Sindh province.

With increase by Rs10 per litre, fresh milk will be available in the market at Rs94 per litre.
