**A massive network of water theft was uncovered as a result of two significant joint operations conducted with the Water Board Corporation and Pakistan Rangers(Sindh).

These operations were carried out from October 21 to November 9 which benefited greatly the people of Karachi.

Twenty-two of the Rangers’ most important operations were directed at illegal water hydrants. Of these, forty-eight were demolished, and three were sealed to stop more illegal activity.

The accused parties engaged in these operations were apprehended right away and turned over to the police to face additional legal proceedings.

Chief Executive of the Water Board Corporation, Salahuddin, said that the daily value of the stolen water amounted to Rs4 million. The illegal hydrant was cunningly operating under the guise of an RO plant. Legal action has been initiated against 15 individuals implicated in the Water Board Corporation’s case.

Additionally, during these operations, 21 illegal underground bore connections were terminated, further dismantling the water theft infrastructure that had been plaguing the city.
