CHITRAL: Chitral river is fast becoming a dumping ground due to a lack of proper sewerage system in the town and laxity on part of the town municipal corporation.
A visit to the riverside by ChiralToday correspondent showed that butchers, poultry dealers, auto workshop owners, vegetable vendors and others openly dump their waste into the water and even local residents use the river as a convenient place to dispose of their household garbage into the river.
Carcasses of dead animals were also seen lying along the river, sending out foul smell and polluting the river. Some locals said the TMA Chitral had around 100 employees but they were never seen at work and instead carried on their own businesses or drew salaries sitting at homes. –GH Farooqui
