ISLAMABAD, Apr 10 (APP): Despite of ban, unabated motor-boating in Rawal Lake is continuously posing serious threats to the lives of visitors besides polluting water.
The operators have set up small boat-yards at Lake View Park’s visitors’ point after breaking the park’s walls in clear violation of rules, while the Capital Development Authority (CDA) has turned blind eye toward the matter.
Dozens of boats including motor, paddle and rowboats can be seen in Rawal Lake without the provision of life jackets to the visitors and other safety measures, which is putting their lives at risk.
