Water supply to many areas of Karachi suspended on Sunday due to the repairing of Dhabiji pumping station pipeline which is likely to take 48 hours.

According to reports, a 4-number pipeline of the pumping station that has 72 diameter bursted last night due to the power break down, suspending water supply to many areas.

The Karachi Water Board team started the reparing after 10 hours of its rupture.

The executive engineer of the Gharo Division told the Express News that they had already sent a 600-million rupees PC 1 for the pipeline but the Sindh government has yet to take any action.
