Karachi Water and Sewerage Board (KWSB) employees on Monday suspended the work while protesting outside the office of KWSB MD Asadullah Khan after PTI MNA Faheem Khan allegedly tortured the Board workers of Korangi Sub-division who were on duty to stop water theft, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

KWSB employees also lodged an application in the relevant police station and maintained that they would stop the work till an FIR is registered against the PTI MNA Faheem Khan.
