Residents of Mandar Bagh, Basant Bagh and its adjoining areas here staged a protest against alleged delay in relief distribution to the flood affected people.
 
The protestors including females assembled at Press Enclave here and decried delay in relief distribution. 
 
"During floods, hundreds of houses were damaged. The Revenue officials had conducted a detailed verification to assess the losses. But now the Revenue department had started a fresh verification causing delay in relief distribution," the protestors said. 
 
They said that more than 59 cases are pending in the office of Tehsildar South. "We are moving from pillar to post to get relief," said Rifat Banoo, a protester.
 
Tehsildar South (Srinagar) Nuzhat Banoo said that she has directed Naib Tehsildar to look into the pending cases. "As a public servant, I have to ensure transparency. I assure the victims that they will get their due," she said. (CNS)
