Traders smuggle LPG from Afghanistan to Pakistan

LPGOfficials of the Oil and Gas Enterprise of Afghanistan’s Ministry of Commerce and Industries said that a number of Afghan and Pakistani traders are involved in smuggling Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) through the Spin Boldak district in Kandahar, Afghanistan into Pakistan.

The high price of LPG in Pakistan has fueled smuggling of the gas into the country.

According to reports, the price of 1KG of LPG in Pakistan has increased to 180 Pakistan Rupees.

Afghan officials are concerned that the rising smuggling of gas will escalate the prices of gas in Afghanistan.

“We are asking our security forces to prevent the smuggling of LPG into Pakistan,” Tolo News quotes Head of Oil and Gas Enterprise Department of the Ministry of Commerce and Industries, Faridullah Shirzai.
