Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) has terminated the services of over 1, 500 of its employees on the Supreme Court (SC) orders, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Thursday.

The officers and ordinary staff members who have been sacked had been recruited between 1993 and 1996 when Pakistan Peoples Party was in power with former prime minister late Benazir Bhutto (BB) as the prime minister.

When Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) came to power in 1997, it fired these employees only to be reinstated by the PPP when it took office in 2008.

The SNGPL administration has banned the entry of executive officers and other members of the staff in its offices besides ordering confiscation of their duty cards.

Similarly, a notification has been issued under which the facilities of free provision of gas as well as medical treatment have been withdrawn.
