Baramulla, Apr 11: A hailstorm on Wednesday afternoon wrecked havoc in many areas of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district and its adjoining areas.
“Hail storm caused huge damage to crops like Apple, Vegetables and other fruits,” said Abdul Ahad.
This year we expected a good crop as our orchards seemed to be abundant in Apple’s, but the hailstorm has not only dashed our hopes, but also left the orchardists in desperation, he added.
Fruit grower of Baramulla and Boniyar areas said that hailstorms damaged orchards and other crops in Baramulla and adjoining areas of the district.
Meanwhile, fruit growers appealed the government to compensate them for the losses.
