Shopian: Deprived of potable water facility for past four decades, women and even men in Check Sedow village of southern Shopian district walk at least three Kilometers to fetch water from a Nallah.
“In absence of tap water for past four decades, we are forced to consume contaminated water from open Nallah,” said a local.
“People here particularly children are falling sick due to consumption of contaminated but the authorities’ continue to ignore sour sufferings,” he added.
