Indian authorities opened three spillways out of five of Laddakh Dam, causing extra water flowing in River Indus. India also released water in River Sutlej which is likely to pass through Head Ganda Singh to enter in Pakistan around 11 am today. The National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) has issued flood warning to the distrct authorities concerned keeping in view rising water level in Sutlej and Indus. The NDMA's spokesman said 150,000 cusec to 200,000 cusec of water discharged from Indian water channels could enter in Pakistan. Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Bozdar issued directions to the provincial chief secretary and DG Punjab Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) to adopt all preventive measures to tackle any untoward situation. The CM also ordered evacuation of people living alongside rivers' beds.
