Sumbal, Dec 19: Locals from Pushwara Naidkha area of Sumbal town here in north Kashmir’s Bandipora district Wednesday staged a protest against the establishment of a filling station in the area.
Locals said that a petrol pump has come up in Pushwara area that has become a nuisance for them.
“We don’t know who permitted the owner to set up this Petrol Pump here. Our women folk are unable to pass through the station that is adjacent to our paddy fields,” they said.
They alleged that the owner of the filling station has greased the palms of some government officials who allowed him to set this pump without the consent of the locals.
“We appeal to authorities to relocate this petrol pump,” they said.
