MULTAN: The District Government Multan has imposed a three-day ban on swings and slides for children in all the parts of the district on eve of Eid-ul-Fitr to avoid any untoward incident.
The move has been taken to prevent any unfortunate incident during Eid celebrations, officials said.
The district government officials asserted that many swings in different parks have been rusted away and fallen into disrepair, hence it would be dangerous to allow children to go for swings and slides.
The officials contended that the step has been taken for the safety of children without an intention to deprive the public of celebration opportunities.
It is to be mentioned here that over 120 children received injuries in a similar occasion of Eid last year in July when a swing was collapsed in a park of Sahiwal city.
