ISLAMABAD: Authorities in the federal capital on Sunday sealed a dozen more restaurants and eateries besides imposing heavy fines during a campaign against substandard and unhealthy food.

Despite a weekly holiday, the local administration conducted raids on different restaurants including KFC, Hardee’s, Savour Foods, Fresco Sweets, Jahangir Barbecue, Usmania and others.

Some of the restaurants were sealed off on account of their failure to maintain hygiene while the others faced the wrath of local administration for serving recycled food to visitors. Few of the eateries were also found to be an open field for rats and insects.

The raids were conducted on restaurants and hotels located in G-6, F-7 and F-9 and Melody Food Park areas of the federal capital.

Five restaurants were sealed in Melody Park alone while in Blue area the authorities not only sealed the Fresco Sweets, but also took few members of the staff including manager into custody.
