Rawalpindi: The residents of the city have urged the district administration to shuffle makeshift animal hide godowns from housing areas as they were spoiling the environment.

Talking to APP, Ziarat Khan, a resident of the Pir Choha area said the hides collected on the occasion of Eid Ul Azha were stored in the residential area godowns which become source of various diseases.

He said that animal skin traders kept the hides for several weeks in their godowns and were polluting the entire environment. Sheikh Umer, another resident of the area said that it has become problematic for the residents to move into the area without a mask due to the smell.
