Keenjhar Lake case taken to court over ‘unsafe boat rides’

KARACHI: (HRNW) A Karachi lawyer has filed a petition in the Sindh High Court seeking to make the boat rides in Thatta safer a day after 10 people drowned in Keenjhar Lake.

Advocate Nadeem Shaikh, in his petition, said that more cases of boat accidents are being reported now. There is no law or policy for boat rides from Keenjhar Lake to the shrine of Noori Jam Tamachi.

There should be a law regulating licenses for people to operate boats, he said, adding that passengers aren’t provided with life jackets and the boats are often overcrowded.

The petitioner said that an investigation should be launched against the SP and SHO, among others. The court has fixed the case for hearing.
