Abandoned, Kashmir flood victims suffer in silence
Srinagar: Eight months on, reminiscences of last September’s deluge are still reverberating in the lives of many. Families in and around Srinagar city are yet to reconcile with the aftermath of the natural calamity that befell them early last autumn. A family in Srinagar’s posh locality, Jawahar Nagar, is yet to clear the muck in their two-storey house that was brought along, by the devastating floods that hit the Valley, especially Srinagar city, on 7 September last year. The deluge claimed around 300 lives and injured hundreds across the state apart from causing huge losses to property, which is estimated in trillions of rupees.
