A mysterious oil slick along the coast of Karachi from Mubarak Village to Manora island— has become cause of a major environmental crisis and death of huge number of marine animals.
As per details garnered, Sindh Chief Minister (CM) Murad Ali Shah and federal minister for maritime affairs have taken notice of the hapless incident. Officials in Sindh and Balochistan have launched separate probe into the matter.
According to the World Wide Fund for Nature-Pakistan (WWF-Pakistan), a major oil spill was seen near Churna Island on Wednesday but its extent and severity did not become apparent immediately. However, by Thursday morning, the oil slick beached on Mubarak Village and quickly spread up to Sandspit Beach by the afternoon.
