Weather vane ‘stolen’ from Frere Hall


Chief Secretary Sindh Siddique Memon on Wednesday took notice of ‘theft’ of a rooster-shaped weather vane which used to sit atop Karachi landmark Frere Hall.

Chief Secretary’s spokesman Naukhaiz Anwar Siddiqi said Memon has also ordered the Karachi commissioner and Karachi Municipal Corporation Administrator Shoaib Siddiqui to submit a report on the incident within two days.

A television channel took notice of the missing weather vane, prompting a response from the chief secretary.

Suspicions of theft arose as the rooster-shaped weather vane, which is said to have been removed from a spire of the historical building while renovations were underway, has yet to be replaced.
