Open selling of banned hormone injections continues in Cattle Colony


Karachi: Some dairy farmers of Bhense Colony Karachi have been using dangerous and banned hormone injections of Boostin and Somatech to increase mulching yield of their cows and buffaloes; however, these very harmful hormones are spreading fatal intestine diseases amongst Karachiites.

The corrupt officials of livestock, food departments and district administration are fully aware of the open selling of these hormones in Cattle Colony Landhi, but they are sheltering the suppliers and sellers of these injections that have already been banned in Pakistan.

In Punjab the provincial government is sealing the cattle pens and sending their owners in jail if they are found guilty of administrating Boostin and Somatech injections to their mulching animals; however, in Sindh and the largest cattle colony of Karachi, Bhense Colony, injections of Boostin and Somatech are openly available for a price of Rs500-600 per injection.

The citizens have demanded of the of livestock, food departments and district administration to take action against the corrupt officials who are not taking action against the stockers, suppliers, sellers and users of harmful injections of Boostin and Somatech on urgent basis.
