Giving details, KE’s press statement said that the FIA along with KE’s team raided different spots of Baldia, Uthal, DHA, Tipu Sultan, Garden, FB Area, Nazimabad, Liaquatabad, Gulshan, Surjani, Landhi, Johar and Korangi.
About 6,500 illegal connections were removed and more than 3,300 KG of kunda (illegal connections) were pulled down.
