Hearing a petition regarding the failure to supply drinking water in Karachi’s Clifton, Block 2, two-member bench headed by Justice Syed Hassan Azhar Rizvi questioned the Karachi Water and Sewerage Board (KWSB)'s deputy director regarding the shortage of water within the city. Justice Rizvi accused the water board of colluding with the ‘tanker mafia’, stating that the owner of a single tanker purchases a fleet within six months, remarking that water was being supplied to owners of tankers instead of directly to consumers.
