Srinagar, Sep 26 (KNS): Locals from various places of the Srinagar city have complained that concertina wires used by the paramilitary forces around their camps have created hurdles in clearance of garbage and debris settled by the devastating floods in Kashmir.
“We are facing tough times as our volunteers have faced cuts and bruises by concertina wires under the garbage. We appeal the government to clear these wires so that garbage clearance is possible,” Mushtaq Ahmad a local from exchange road told KNS.
Similar reports are pouring in from various other places like Habba Kadal, Fateh Kadal, Baba Demb, Qamarwari, Batmaloo and Bemina. “The concertina wires placed by the CRPF around their camp has caused huge problems for us. We are not able to clear the debris and garbage littered around our shops and houses,” a local from Bohri Kadal told KNS over phone.
He added that a youth’s hand was severely injured by a concertina wire while he was busy clearing garbage around his shop. “We have always complained the authorities about these concertina wires and now with the ravaging floods these wires have doubled our problems,” said Nazir Ahmad Ganaie, a resident of Batmaloo. Despite repeated attempts, KNS did not succeed to have the comments from IG CRPF and IGP Kashmir due to defunct poor tele-communication services.
