Chitral Police distributes relief goods among flood effectees

By Zahiruddin

CHITRAL: Chitral police distributed food items in Kalash valley of Bumburate and other flood-hit areas of Chitral where commodities of daily use have run out due to the collapse of suspension bridges and eroding of roads to floods.

District police officer, Abbas Majeed Khan Marwat led the jawans of his force carrying bags of food items through the dirt pedestrian track leading to Bumburate valley from Ayun village which took him about five hours.

Deputy superintendent of police (headquarters) Muhammad Khalid told Chitral Times  that this was the second expedition undertaken by the district police chief as earlier this month, he had led the convoy of 200 jawans to Mulkhow on feet from Kuragh as the area has been disconnected by road from other parts of the district.

He said that during the ongoing crisis of food and drinking water in the flood-hit areas, the police also took a number of initiatives for the amelioration of the affected and mitigate their suffering which included running water tankers around the city round the clock.

He said that medical camps were arranged in a number of remote valleys and free medicines were provided to the patients as prescribed by the doctors.
