Another incident has been reported of hotel staff misbehaving with tourists in Murree. This time, the incident escalated into violence.

When the family went to the police at the GPO Chowk, they refused to register an FIR.

After the CM took notice of the incident, the muharrar and incharge of the checkpost were suspended and the Punjab IG has been ordered to investigate what happened.

This isn’t the first time tourists have been harassed in Murree. After a massive increase in such incidents was reported, the Dolphin Force was deployed in the area. They were recalled at the end of September. Following the rise of the incidents, tourists began to boycott Murree.

The Murree police say they have identified the hotel workers involved in the incident and have begun an investigation against them. A team has been formed to arrest them.

    I also recently visited Murree and must say that things are in a mess. Apart from being very over crowded. You are constantly taunted by agents asking if we require a room when neither we appear to be searching for a room nor carrying luggage.

    Murree is losing its reputation both within and outside the country. I could not even spend 10 minutes on the mall when my family complained of it being too suffocating.

    Misbehavior of the local transporters, hotel staff/agents, and many others has become usual. I am a witness of many such atrocities by the locals.
    I don’t understand; why the tourists choose to visit such a spot; having many better and peaceful places.

    The people of murree, especially and tpt staff are uneducated and foolish type people . There’s a dire need to correct their attitude with tourists. Govt should take pragmatic steps to curb this unprofessional behavior, otherwise public should boycott visiting Murree. Police are also fools and companions of these non Sense individuals. We request from PM to take notice of such kind of incident of harrassing and maltreatment.
