Sindh Private Schools Banned from Sale of ‘Soda & Soft Drinks’ in Glass Bottles

The sale of lime and fizzy drinks was outlawed at schools on Monday by the Directorate of Inspection and Registration of Private Institutions Sindh (DIRPIS), after a young student tragically passed away last week after being hurt in a soft drink bottle explosion.

Five-year-old Huzaifa, who was cut by a glass from a soft drink bottle on February 24 in a private school in Malir’s Model Colony neighborhood, eventually died as a result of his wounds.

“Principals/administrators of all privately-managed schools are ordered to ensure that no Limca/Soda drink is allowed/kept in schools premises for sale,” the notification from the department stated.
