    It was a sheer negligence on the part of a responsible civil servant posted at Drosh that we suffered a lot at lowari tunnel..no word is enough to condemn why the Assistant commissioner Drosh ordered for all kinds of vehicles to pass through the tunnel at the same time?it caused a road block nd people suffered beyond the limit of human endurance…is it possible that someone may go for inquirey into the mattet?
