Pakistan: Sixas villagers killed in Dera Ghazi Khan by violent currents of hill torrents


Six villagers were killed when violent currents of a hill torrent brea­ched a protection dyke in Dera Ghazi Khan as rain affected parts of Sin­dh and Balochistan on Wed­­nes­day, Dawn reported on Thursday.

As details of destruction wrought by the rains and flooding began to unfold, six more people were reported missing from the torrent-hit Shadan Lund protection dyke.

A large number of people in Lasbela area of Balochistan were marooned as rescuers faced difficulties in reaching them though 150 people were rescued from Lakhra tehsil.

According to villagers living near the protection dyke, they were caught unawares as the administration did not issue any warning about the torrents coming from the Soori Lund hill. Floodwaters also affected wheat stocks of the food department.

According to reports, Soori hill torrents breached areas of Pul Qamber, Basti Amdani, Chowkiwala, Basti Lashari and Chitani Zindapir Morr.
