The staff of the Sindh Food Authority in Liaquatabad, Karachi, has been suspended following allegations of extortion from shopkeepers. The Director General of the Sindh Food Authority, Agha Fakhar Hussain, took swift action after reports of extortion surfaced on Dawn News.

The staff members involved in the alleged extortion have been suspended, and a departmental inquiry has been initiated to investigate the matter thoroughly. The inquiry aims to determine the facts surrounding the incident and to address any misconduct within the authority.

Earlier reports indicated that a Sindh Food Authority team in Karachi was accused of collecting alleged extortion instead of fines for SOP violations. The team allegedly collected 10 thousand rupees from each shop in Liaquatabad and subsequently fled the scene in a car. The suspension and inquiry demonstrate the commitment to accountability and transparency within the Sindh Food Authority.
