PSX Implements Rigorous Security Measures During Office Fire Incident

Karachi: The Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) successfully maintained high security measures today during a fire incident at a broker’s office within its compound. The fire caused limited structural damage and did not impact the PSX's main office building, trading systems, servers, or connectivity.

According to Pakistan Stock Exchange Limited, the fire prompted an immediate security lockdown, allowing only essential personnel and firefighting crews to enter the main compound. This precautionary measure was taken to ensure the safety and integrity of the exchange operations, which have previously been targeted by terrorism threats. PSX has issued an apology for any inconvenience caused by the restrictions but emphasized their necessity given the potential risks.

PSX is now seeking the cooperation of all stakeholders as it works towards restoring full normalcy and resuming routine operations at the exchange.
