Plastic bags, sewage kill Brari Nambal
Srinagar, May 6: Brari Nambal lagoon is seemingly dying fast because of its continued pollution in the form of garbage and sewage alike.
Muhammad Usman Sheikh, a local of Baba Demb, said till a few decades back people used to swim in it.
“The lagoon used to act as a channel for waters of Dal lake to flow downwards but now it has reduced to a cesspool due to the negligence of authorities and people,” he said.
Usman said the smell emanating out from the lagoon was irresistible for the households living around the lagoon. “Everyday we have to be the victims of nausea. The smell is killing us virtually,” the local said.
The locals appealed the government to look into the matter.
