Efforts to save Shahdadkot fail, Qubo Saeed Khan submerges

SHAHDADKOT: Flood water has forced its entry into tehsil Qubo Saeed Khan as efforts to save the city from inundation have failed; the town is facing water surge from three directions: Shahdadkot, Chukhi and the FP embankment.

Seventy percent of the city has submerged leaving thousands trapped. Communication between Sindh and Balochistan remains suspended through Shahdadkot.

About 20,000 people are stranded; several adjoining areas of Kambar-Shahdadkot were evacuated and about 95 per cent of the population has moved to different cities of Sindh including Larkana, Hyderabad and Karachi.

To save Shahdadkot and several other districts and towns including Larkana, Dadu and all its tehsils, the administration had planned to divert the floodwater to RBOD-111 Canal from where it could head towards Manchhar Lake. Despite taking the RBOD route, the flood water went the opposite way towards FP Bund, which would cause inundation of Kambar, Warrah, Nasirabad, Gaji Khuhawar, Mehar, Khairpur Nathan Shah and Dadu.

Amidst this calamity, dacoits launched a mugging spree and looted several shops and houses in Shahdadkot and Qubo Saeed Khan. Dhani Bux Brohi, a resident of Shadadkot, said that thieves had stolen valuables, grain and cattle from his house. SAMAA
