Shopkeeper in Karachi arrested for selling overpriced hand sanitizer
A shopkeeper was arrested Thursday in Karachi’s Baloch Colony for hoarding and selling overpriced hand sanitizers, police said.
“Zaheer had been hoarding sanitizers at his shop and then sold them for more than triple the actual price,” a police officer said.
More than 100 sanitizer bottles were seized from him by police and an FIR filed.
Following the novel outbreak of coronavirus in Pakistan, grocery stores and shops were flooded with people buying precautionary supplies such as hand sanitizers and masks to shield themselves from the pandemic.
