Pictures of the dinner went viral on social media in which it can clearly be seen that COVID-related SOPs and social distancing were openly neglected in the party.

The restaurant was also sealed while legal proceedings are underway.

A day prior, in wake of worsening situation of deadly third wave of coronavirus, Spokesperson of Sindh government Murtaza Wahab Monday announced that all schools, colleges and universities will remain closed in the province.
