In The Name of ALLAH The Almighty
Drivers fleecing passengers
The passengers bound to upper Chitral from the Chitral town are
facing problems in the afternoon at the bus station in Kubrisht,
Chitral. Most of the vans disappear from the bus station before 1pm
and only one van stands there for the big crowd of passengers and
no one seems bothering to help the stranded passengers especially
women who are eager to reach their destinations. Besides, these
Ghogae (taxi) owners are fleecing the passengers and taking about
300 to 400 rupees per head from here to Booni and nearby areas. One
of the passengers said the drivers and the station owner were
looting innocent citizens.
There isnít proper
management for sending vehicles to upper Chitral through numbering.
A student said it is unaffordable for them to pay 300 to 400 rupees
for reaching their homes in the weekends. Lastly, they requested to
the authorities concerned to wake up and solve the problem facing
passengers of upper Chitral.
