CHITRAL: Right after the restriction on public transport was lifted, beggars from down country have appeared in Chitral bazars as if they were waiting for the time. It is so easy to sweep these beggars and send them across the Lowari and it only needs a few policemen with batons to do it. With the virus threat looming high and even locals are restricted in many ways, unhindered entry of beggars without any screening or quarantining can increase the risk of the virus spread. Hopefully by filing of this report the administration will have done the needful to remove professional beggars from Chitral.
