strange smell in karachi

Residents of Karachi have been complaining about a weird and disgusting smell that has taken over the metropolis.

The citizens are wondering what is the cause of the sickening odor and are taking to social media to solve the mystery of the stink in the city.

The officials at WWF, this time last year, had revealed the reason behind the stench in the air and muse that environmental factors are responsible for it!

According to them, the decay of small planktonic dinoflagellate called Noctiluca Scintillans (also known as Sea Sparkle) has caused this stench.

It is expected that the strange smell citizens of Karachi are experiencing is due to the same cause.
