Karachi: The Sindh High Court has ordered action against shopkeepers charging higher prices for essential items during the month of Ramadan.
Chief Justice of the Sindh High Court Justice Aqeel Ahmed Abbasi presided over a two-member bench which heard a petition regarding the sale of essential items at prices higher than the prescribed rates during Ramadan.
The petitioner’s lawyer argued that shopkeepers were selling essential items at prices higher than the prescribed rates during Ramadan, and authorities were not taking any action against the profiteers. The court ordered strict action against those charging higher prices. Prices of vegetables, fruits, and lentils have also been increased during the holy month.
The court ordered action against shopkeepers charging higher prices than the prescribed rates set by the Commissioner of Karachi, and also instructed to submit reports on actions taken against those selling items at inflated prices.
The court has also demanded responses from the Sindh government, the Bureau of Supply, and others by April 3rd.
