CHITRAL: Local residents have Shahzada Haiderul Mulk of violating an agreement and grabbing green pastures in the Avi Shoghor area of Lower Chitral.
Speaking at a press conference, the elders of Avi Shoghor, including Village Council Chairman Ijaz Ahmad, Muhammad Naeem, Miftahuddin, Chiragh Din and Azizuddin alleged that Shahzada Haider, the MS of the DHQ hospital Chitral, had created fear and panic among the people through alleged criminals in the area.
They said the person in question with the alleged connivance of police had violated the agreement signed in 2015 under which 90 families had abandoned keeping sheep and goats to protect the green pastures and wildlife in Avi pastures.
They said that Haiderul Mulk had now started sending his cattle to the green pastures through his men for grazing which, they claimed, was a glaring example of violation of the accord with the local residents besides destroying the greenery and wildlife in the area.
The local residents appealed to the government to take notice of the issue.–The News
