Dilapidated house on verge of collapse at Nawa Kadal
SYED IMRAN ALI HAMDANI
Srinagar, Dec 27: An abandoned dilapidated house at Khanqah-e-Sokhta Nawa Kadal in Shahar-e-Khaas is on the verge of collapse endangering lives of inhabitants.
Inhabitants said the four storey house belongs to a Kashmiri Pandit who has migrated from the Valley nearly two decades ago. In absence of any repairs, the house has developed cracks and is on the verge of collapse. One of the corners of the house has been damaged.
“This house can collapse anytime. We many times apprised the authorities to take remedial measures but they acted as mute spectators, In case of snowfall we apprehend that the house would collapse,” said Ghulam Muhammad a local.
“I always move fast near the house in view of its bad condition,” said Zoona Begum a local. “In case of any eventuality, authorities will be responsible for its consequences,” the inhabitants said.
They appealed District Development Commissioner Srinagar Baseer Ahmad Khan and SMC Commissioner Dr G N Qasba to look into the matter.
