Families in Upper reaches of Baramulla’s Bandi Bala Village Lose Everything To Blaze

Written by Shafat

Two families living in hilly hamlet of Bandi Bala in Baramulla district lost everything to the blaze last September. The houses were completely gutted in this incident, which consumed the property worth lacs along with the provisions these families had stored for the winters. Some 20 odd members from both the families suffered minor burn injuries also while rescuing others. Our Community Correspondent, Mir Yaseen, visited these families and recorded their ordeal. The families are putting up in temporary tents and are in dire need of assistance. The government needs to provide some better alternative of living as the winters have set in Kashmir with many mountainous areas having already received season’s first snowfall.
