MUZAFFARGARH

Two real sisters eight-year-old Samna Umar and six-year-old Momina Umar drowned in floodwater near Rangpur when their family was shifting to safer place from Dera Haibat Khan village here on Saturday. Thousands of locals remained stranded near Muzaffargarh as about four to five feet floodwater was playing havoc in the villages located in riverbed. These villages were inundated due to flood in River Chenab on both sides of the river in Multan and Muzaffargarh districts. Marooned villagers are being evacuated and shifted to different Relief Centres set up by the district administration.
