Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has launched an investigation against the online platforms that were selling sacrificial animals this Eid.

Majority of complaints filed are about late delivery of meat, lesser meat quantity, and in some cases, the meat was not even delivered. There are also complains that the animal meat got stale to the point where it became un-edible.

A few weeks before Edi-Ul-Adha several meat brands, cattle farm owners, and regular businesses set up their website offering multiple services regarding the Eid.


Among them, the lowest-ranked online Eid services providers are Meat Master, ARY Sahulat Bazar, and Laal Meat. The online platforms offered the substandard facilities to the users and did not deliver what it promised the users.

The Deputy Director of Crime Cell Abdul Ghafoor said that after receiving hundreds of complaints, the unit finally decides to conduct a thorough investigation.

Iftikhar Shalwani, the Commissioner Karachi, has advised FIA to take stern action against such companies along with the others which will be deciphered fully after the investigation.

Earlier, the government has urged the citizens to avoid going to the cattle market and buy cattle online to curb the spread of COVID-19.

It was not the first time when online platform became an option for the selling and purchasing of the sacrificial animal it has been done for years.
