Commandant assures easing tunnel users woes
Chitral - Subject to the government' approval of opening
the Lowari Tunnel for travelers this winter, Chitral
Scouts would do it's best to facilitate the travel, said
Commandant Chitral Scouts Colonel Haroon Ur Rashid in a
meeting with Wg Cdr (r) Fardad Ali Shah who had called
on the former, to apprise him of the people's problems
while crossing the tunnel as experienced last winters.
It may be pointed out that Chitral Scouts is responsible
for security measures at the tunnel.
Wg Cdr (r) Fardad Ali Shah said it was more secure
to allow individual vehicles through the tunnel both
ways round the clock, as and when they approach, instead
of hoarding them into a convoy which offers a collective
target risk inside. The commandant assured full
cooperation where welfare of the people was concerned
staying within the ambit of his responsibility.
