KARACHI: The rupee weakened against the dollar at Rs133.89/Rs134.07 in the inter-bank market on Wednesday compared with Tuesday’s close of Rs133.84/Rs134.05, according to the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP). Last month, the rupee strengthened after Saudi Arabia agreed on a $6-billion assistance package for Pakistan. Earlier in October, a slump in the value of the rupee came after the government decided to knock at the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) door to avoid default on import payments and debt repayments.
