KARACHI: Two textile factories in the metropolis have been closed by authorities for violating the locking of the coronavirus, police said on Tuesday.
Senior police superintendent for Malir, Syed Muhammad Ali Raza, said the operation was carried out at two facilities owned by Yunus Textile Mills Limited and Alkaram Textile Mills Pvt. Ltd. After the raid, the owners, as well as high administrative officials, were arrested, he added.
The operation was carried out under the leadership of Karachi Commissioner Iftikhar Ali Shallwani, who then ordered the two factories to be closed, Raza added. Factory owners and administrative officers were released after they submitted written guarantees that they would not violate locking orders in the future.
The police official added that Alkaram had broken the lock 10 days ago too and an official case was filed against their administration. However, after getting a guarantee, they have reopened their facilities.
However, the two factories now remain sealed as long as the locking continues, Raza underlines.
