Decayed Chinar on verge of collapse at Lal Bazar

Residents seek DC’s intervention

Residents of Bota Shah Mohalla Lal Bazar area have expressed resentment over failure of authorities to undertake pruning of a decayed Chinar saying it poses risk to their lives and property.  

“The Chinar has decayed and its branches fell even after slight winds. Recently during the windstorm, people had a narrow escape and several vehicles were damaged after its branches fell on ground,” said a  delegation from the area led by Mehraj-u-Din Misger. The Chinar is opposite J&K Bank branch Lal Bazar.

“We make a fervent appeal DC Srinagar to direct the concerned officials to take measures for avoiding any untoward incident due to collapse of the Chinar branches,” Misger said.
