Ganderbal: Kangan residents on Thursday demanded fencing of power canal after teen (boy) drowned to death.
Fencing was the only possible to save human lives, they said
Body of Sadaqat Ahmad 17, was retrieved from canal a few hours after he drowned into the canal.
“Fencing won’t cost much to the government but it will definitely save precious human lives” said a local.
“At least 10 people have drowned to death in power canal but sadly government is still unmoved,” he added
The locals said human lives can only be saved by complete fencing of the power canal.
Two boys drowned to death in river Sindh on Sunday, triggering a widespread demand for fencing.
Deputy Commissioner Ganderbal has imposed a blanket ban on swimming and bathing in river Sindh following drowning incidents
