MURREE: Heavy rainfall over the last four days has severely damaged homes in various places and caused landslides at points on the under-construction Murree-Kohala Road.

The road is also blocked near Hadot, causing problems to commuters who need to transport food products.

The home of Ghulamullah Abbasi in Mussiyarri village was destroyed in a landslide, while the home of Mushtaq Abbasi in the same village was also damaged, forcing the family to live under the open sky in bad weather.

In Khani Taak village, the home of Chaudhry Arshad was also completely damaged in a heavy landslide caused by the rain.

Locals have appealed to the Punjab government to compensate the people whose homes have been damaged.
