JHANG: District administration has busted Athara Hazari village protective embankment because of heavy flood on River Chenab near Jhang city.
District Coordination Officers (DCO) said that 250 villages of Jhang would be affected due to heavy flood. The Flood water has entered Ahmed Pur Sial, Ahmed Pur Shah and other areas of Athara Hazari. However, three days earlier many people evacuated their homes from Athara Hazari to Jhang.
In 1992, authorities had broken the protective embankment of Athara Hazari previously when Jhang city was threatened by heavy flood.
