Gas theft

According to a news item, Minister for Petroleum and Natural Resources Dr Asim Hussain told the National Assembly’s Standing Committee on Petroleum and Natural Resources that there is no particular law to deal with gas theft cases in Pakistan. This amazing remark will only encourage more gas theft in the country. Even if it is true, the learned minister should not have said it.
