Sale of drinks in glass bottles in schools banned in Sindh
KARACHI: Following the unfortunate death of a young student who was hurt by the explosion of a soft drink bottle, the Directorate of Inspection and Registration of Private Institutions Sindh (DIRPIS) on Monday announced to restrict the sale of limca and soda drinks in schools.
The principal and administrators of all privately run schools are instructed to make sure that no Limca/Soda drinks in glass bottles are kept or sold on school property, per the DIRPIS’s notification.
However, schools are allowed to sell soft drinks in cans or plastic bottles. Six Sindh divisions—Karachi, Hyderabad, Sukkur, Mirpur Khas, Benazirabad, and Larkana divisions—were subject to the restriction.
This action is being taken to protect children and to prevent regrettable occurrences from happening in the future, according to the notification.
It is important to note that a pupil died as a result of his injuries after being cut by a glass of a soft drink bottle at a school in Karachi.
Huzaifa, a class five pupil, was hurt during the incident at a private school in Malir’s Model Colony district.
He was treated in the intensive care unit of the Civil Hospital’s trauma centre after being transported there (ICU). The father of the child claims that he passed away while being treated at the hospital.
A great action taken by Sindh government as sale of drinks in glass bottles in schools banned in Sindh.
