Recently a video has been making rounds on Facebook about a Shell petrol pump at Askari 4, Karachi, selling impure fuel.
As seen in the video, it appears that the Hi-Octane fuel has trace quantities of water mixed with it.
It was shared over Facebook and has since gone viral, with various people sharing it on groups all over social media.
The video shows Hi-Octane petroleum dispensed into a tall container with an operative dipping a hollow rod into the container and taking out a small bit of the fuel. He then drips it on to his hand and smells it.
A woman in the video complains about how her car broke down on the road due to water being mixed into the fuel.
The video doesn’t show any credible test done on the fuel itself let alone the question of mixing oil and water in the first place, hence the veracity of the fuel being tainted and all can’t be ascertained at this point in time.
We have reached out to Shell for comments on the video and are awaiting their response over the viral video.
As mentioned above, nothing can be said for sure until there are authorized reports from credible sources.
This is a developing story and we’ll be updating it as more details come in.
Update: The video has been removed by the owner.
