Kundan Broast, a restaurant located in Nasirabad area of Karachi, has been temporarily sealed by the Sindh Food Authority on Friday.

SFA Deputy-Director Operations District Central Sumera Hussain and her team raided the eatery and found it was operating in unhygienic conditions. The restaurant also was fined Rs50,000.

The team collected samples of oil and other food items and dispatched them for lab tests. In its inspection report, the food authority said that the restaurant was found in the worst condition with flies present everywhere and rusted equipment being used for cooking.
