Naudero, Sindh: A breach occurred in Nusrat Shakh canal near here on Saturday morning due to which entire Faiz Mohammad Jeho Village was inundated.

The drain canal gets irrigation water directly from Dadu Canal and provides water to thousands of acres of agricultural lands located in & around the village.

Due to 20-feet breach in it knee-deep water spread in whole village and damaged crops of vast area. The villagers tired to plug the breach but due lack of machinery could not do so.

Later, villagers including Mushtaque, Hameer Jeho, Aijaz, Dur Mohammad, Jan Muhammad, Abdullah Jeho and others held a protest demonstration against Irrigation authorities and said that their fish farms also came under water and they lost their house hold items and crops.

They demanded a high level inquiry as to why the stone pitching of Dadu Canal & Nusrat drain was not carried out.
