Sale of soda and soft drinks in glass bottles banned in schools in Sindh
The sale of soda and soft drinks in glass bottles has been banned in schools in Sindh!
The Directorate of Inspection and Registration of Private Institutions Sindh (DIRPIS) prohibited the sale of limca and fizzy drinks in schools on Monday.
The decision was taken after a five-grade student Huzaifa, tragically died last week after being injured following the explosion of a soft drink bottle.
A notification issued by the directorate read: “Principals/administrators of all privately-managed schools are directed to ensure that no Limca/Soda drink is allowed/kept in schools premises for sale.
“These steps are being taken to safeguard the children so that such painful incidents may not occur in the future,” the notification said.
All principals and administrators of privately managed schools in Karachi, Hyderabad, Sukkur, Mirpurkhas, Shaheed Benzirabad, and Larkana Regions are advised that soft drinks and beverages in glass bottles should not be kept or sold in the school.
However, soft drinks in plastic bottles or cans may be sold in schools.
