Bathing in sea on the eve of Eid banned


KARACHI: Commissioner Karachi Shoib Ahmad Siddiqui said on Wednesday that on the occasion of Eidul Fitr, section 144 CrPC had been enforced along Karachi’s beach, banning bathing in the sea.

“To avoid any untoward incident, a Rescue Center will also be established along the beach,” Siddiqui said while chairing a meeting at his office, held to review the steps of district management regarding Eidul Fitr.

He said last year, a hurting incident took place in the sea which was a lesson. On the occasion of Eid, a little negligence of man could change the happy moments into sorrow.

Commissioner Karachi said district management would set up a rescue center where life guards would be appointed there. He said parks and public places in the city are also being cleaned where citizens come with their families for entertainment.

He said a letter has been issued from Commissioner Karachi to concerned departments including Administrator Karachi, Metropolitan Commissioner, Cantonment Boards, Administrator Defense Housing Authority and other city departments in this regard.
