KARAK, 6 July: The people of Karak are facing annoyance due to noise of firecrackers during the Sehr and Iftar timings.
The local residents said they face trouble during prayers due to the noise of firecrackers.
“After the daylong fasting when we go to mosque for Taraweeh the children begin noise of firecrackers due to which we are facing a very uncomfortable situation. We appeal the administration to take notice of the matter,” Khalid Usman, a local resident, told TNN.
Karak Headquarters DSP Ismail Marwat says strict ban has been imposed on firecrackers.
“Most of these crackers come from Bannu. We have assigned special duty of cops to control this thing. We can’t register cases against children for possessing a single or two firecrackers. However, we will not allow anyone to do firecrackers business in Karak,” Mr Marwat told TNN.
The local people have demanded the government to impose complete ban on firecrackers.
