June 21, 2021

MANSEHRA: A well-off expatriate is getting constructed an embankment wall between Siran River and Gogra Bridge after eight members of a family were killed when a pickup vehicle plunged into a gorge last week.

Mohammad Ejaz Tanoli settled in Muscat and inaugurated work on the 350 feet long embankment wall along the Siran River.

“I was shocked after hearing that eight members of a family died at this point as there is no boundary wall between Pulrah road and Siran River. I have started construction of this protection wall for the safety of people,” he said.

He said that he did have any political and personal motives and was doing the work to seek the blessings of Allah.

He said that a group of local volunteers led by a prayer leader Qazi Israrul Haq and Bukhtar Tanoli would supervise the construction work.
