Bund wall vandalized at Sonwar
CANTT BOARD TURNS MUTE SPECTATOR
Srinagar, Nov 2: A section of Bund wall on the banks of River Jehlum behind PDD grid station in Sonwar has been vandalized by unknown persons.
A delegation of residents who live near the Bund told Greater Kashmir that after encroachment on banks of river Jhelum, a section of Bund has been vandalized as the concrete has been removed which is criminal as per the Municipal Laws. “However, the Cantonment Board has turned mute spectator to the encroachment as well as erasing of the Bund, which is our heritage,” said a resident, who lives behind Shangrila Hotel and PDD grid station.
The residents have also appealed to GoC 15 Corps to allow opening of the Bund from Sonwar side.
“For decades now, the Bund from Sonwar to Shivpora has remained shut as concertina wires and concrete material has been laid to close it for public. Since the Bund has a historic importance and people use to cherish walk on it, its continuous closure remains irritant to those who want to go for morning or evening walk or opt this way to enter City,” said the residents.
