Chitral-Peshawar road closed after flooding near Drosh

DROSH: The only main road connecting Chitral with other parts of the country was closed after flooding at a mullah near Drosh following torrential rain and hailstorm on Saturday night.

The localities affected by the flash floods stretched from Dondigal Markazabad to Serdur. As a result, commuters were stuck on both sides of the flooded area on Sunday morning.

Local people said the NHA had not sent enough manpower and machinery to clear the road. Due to the blockade, the passengers are suffering a lot and the body of a Chitrali official of the Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF), who died in Islamabad yesterday, had to be carried on shoulders across the blocked road towards his village on Sunday.
