Flyover at Sanat Nagar square; Better late than never
WE THE SRINAGARITES
IT’S great that finally the government woke to get the construction of much required flyover at Sanat Nagar approved. But then the tragedies, which the delay left behind will continue to haunt many like me who have been witness to what one can’t ever forget.
Around a month ago, I saw how a family was ruined by the “killer” Sanat Nagar square. It was another worst accident on the same bypass, which has consumed many lives in the past.
This time a teenage girl, Anna Kathwari of Presentation Convent High School died on the spot and her mother Tabasum got severely injured when a speeding truck hit them.
Anna was standing at the bypass with her mother and her younger sister when the duo got crushed.
Seeing this, the younger sister was so shocked that she couldn’t even move. Finally a shopkeeper informed their father, Javed Ahmed.
Anna was going to her tuitions. The father was shell-shocked on seeing his daughter’s body.
Her mortal remains were laid to rest at Malkha.
As about the mother, she is battling for life at SKIMS while the younger daughter a witness to the incident is shocked.
Javed Ahmed is now left with a young son, a daughter (7th standard) and hopefully his wife.
Once again another family is shattered, what will happen to them now.
When will the government get serious towards the welfare of this ignored City When will it take measures to construct the Sanat Nagar flyover.
Had the government acted promptly in the construction of the flyover at the faulty site, the tragedy could have been averted.
