LARKANA - Pakistan Army on Tuesday rescued several flood victims after a boat capsized near Bobak area of Sindh province.

According to details, the boat was ferrying flood victims across the lake when it met the accident and all the people – including women and children – onboard went underwater. Upon receiving the information, the Pakistan Army launched an operation and rescued all the trapped people and shifted them to the nearby village.

A day earlier, Pakistan Army and civilian departments saved the 500KV grid station in Dadu from flood water by constructing a 2.4 kilometre embankment around it.

The embankment saved the station from drowning while no power disruption occurred in Dadu. People of the area expressed gratitude to Pakistan Army for this timely action.

It is pertinent to mention here that the irrigation authorities on Sunday administered three cuts in the Indus Highway as floodwater from Manchar Lake started flowing towards Dadu city.
