Srinagar, August 02 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, a youth was washed away in Suran river while at least 180 houses, 100 shops and 60 vehicles and public property worth millions of rupees were damaged in massive flash flood in Rajouri district alone in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
The inhabitants including the traders of four municipal wards in Surankote town suffered losses worth crores of rupees in the flash floods triggered by heavy downpours.
Flash floods wreaked havoc as the water seeped into the houses and shops, causing extensive damage to the properties and other commodities.
The main affected localities were Dak Bungalow Mohalla, Tehsil office Mohalla, BDO office Mohalla, Iqbal Nagar, and Hari Mohalla in the four municipal wards of Surankote town.
“It was a nightmare for everyone in the town as gushing waters were coming down the hills. Within no time, strong water currents entered our house and shops, and everyone was running here and there for safety,” the locals said recounting moments of horror.
