Ittefaq Sugar Mills owned by Sharif family raided during anti-hoarding operation, where huge quantity of sugar sacks hidden inside a go-down seized.

As per reports, more than more than 55,000 sugar bags recovered during the operation in Ittefaq Sugar Mills.

Under the direction of Prime Minister Imran Khan, sugar and wheat store operations are underway throughout the country and thousands of bags of sugar have been recovered in several cities of Sindh and Punjab.

A team led by ADC Shaukat Ali Ajan raided a go-down of a hi-tech mill in Kotri where more than 100,000 sugar sacks were hidden.

The factory owner is identified as Haseeb Shaikh s/o Habib Shaikh and authorities find clues of his alleged connections with the influential persons in the government.

It emerged that Haseeb Shaikh is a resident of Khairpur and nephew of Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Hyderabad Naeem Shaikh.

Moreover, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Manzoor Wasaan is also a partner in the hi-tech mill, whereas, the father of the mill’s owner was a former officer at Sindh’s Works Department in Karachi who had been facing a corruption case registered by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

Previously, an assistant commissioner of the Chowk colony in the city of Melasi, Punjab, took action against the hoarders, during which 1,000 sacks of sugar and 5,000 boxes of ghee were seized.
