Srinagar, July 1: The Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC) officials on Thursday said four of their garbage laden trucks were damaged during clashes between the rock pelting youth and the police. One of the tuck drivers received minor injuries in the stone pelting, they said.
The SMC officials said the trucks were targeted at places including Nishat and Shahr-e-Khaas.
The SMC Commissioner, Sheikh Mushtaq has appealed the “people to provide safe passage to vehicles for lifting garbage”.
Given the summer heat, Mushtaq said, epidemics could outbreak if garbage isn’t allowed to lifted in-time.
He also asked the Srinagarites to dump garbage at designated spots so that the lifting remains easy.
"When the garbage remains scattered it takes more time in collection and subsequent lifting," SMC Health Officer, Dr Reyaz Ahmed said.
