The Pakistani rupee slumped to an all-time low against the US dollar on Tuesday in the interbank market.

The value of the greenback surged by 82 paisa in early trade and currently trading at Rs 188.35 in the interbank market, hitting an all-time high, reported ARY News.

According to forex dealers, the exchange rate remained under pressure as the US dollar continued its upward spiral against the local currency.

The forex dealers said the greenback is being sold above Rs189 in the open market.

The US dollar closed at Rs 187.53 in the interbank market, reported ARY News.

According to experts, the surging dollar has shattered the confidence of the rupee-based economy and its stakeholders.
