Swimming ban slapped on two famous picnic spots
Majority of people from Karachi, Hyderabad and other cities throng these beaches on weekends.
In recent days, five people drowned to death at Gadani beach that prompted the local authorities to ban swimming.
People can travel to seaside but won’t be allowed to swim.
In one of the worst beach tragedies, at least 23 people died in drowning incidents in Karachi. Their remains were recovered from various beaches in the metropolis.
More than 150,000 people had turned up at Karachi’s beaches on the event of Eid in 2014 whereas there were only a handful of rescue personnel covering the coastline of the city which stretches to around 130 kilometres.
