DERA GHAZI KHAN (92 News) – Six passenger buses were drowned in flooding due to rain near Sakhi Sarwar in Dera Ghazi Khan on Wednesday. According to reports, Sakhi Sarwar, a suburb of Dera Ghazi Khan, caused a sudden surge of water in the river drains. Six buses of pilgrims standing in the river were trapped in the water while one bus swept away in the water. According to pilgrims, several people on the bus disappeared due to high flow of water, while four persons were evacuated in critical condition. The rainfall over Suleiman Range has caused flooding in the hill torrents in area. The flood water from hill torrents suddenly struck in an alarming pace and swept away the buses without allowing a chance to move the vehicles to a safer place. Chief Minister of Punjab Usman Buzdar has directed the administration to step up relief and rescue operation with all available resources to rescue the people swept away by the floodwater. The chief minister has summoned report on the incident from the local administration.
