Ganderbal, Sep 6: The residents of Baroosa area of central Kashmir’s district Ganderbal here have complained of contaminated water being supplied to them for the past some days, alleging it to be a reason for immense hardships.
The locals alleged that the issue was brought into the notice of concerned higher authorities several times but nothing has been done in this regard.
They said the fear and apprehensions of water-borne disease including hepatitis and typhoid are common in their areas at present due to the contaminated water being supplied to them.
“Despite the assurances, the concerned officials have failed to take stock of the situation here,” locals alleged.
