Karachi: According to the news reports published in Pakistani media, the Indian sugar was found unfit for human consumption by the environmental protection agency of Sindh, which has advised Pakistan customs to stop the transportation of sugar to Afghanistan. The advisory was issued by the technical team of Sindh Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) after inspecting Indian sugar which arrived at Karachi port in 265 containers for further transport to Afghanistan.

According to SEPA, the action was taken after confirmation from the Environment, Climate Change and Coastal Development Department, Government of Sindh and other agencies that found the Indian sugar contaminated. As per the laboratory reports of both PCSIR and HEJ Research Institute, the expiry date of sugar has been passed. The four key parameters including polarization, moisture, invert sugar and colour, were found deviating from their globally accepted standards.
