Sindh bans sailing, swimming in the sea

32

The Sindh govt has imposed a ban on swimming, sailing, and bathing in the sea for seven days starting Sunday.

A notification issued by the Karachi commissioner states that strong winds have started blowing in the province, especially in the coastal areas. “Due to their impact, the sea has become rough and turbulent with high tidal waves.”

This could pose a threat to the lives of fishermen and people who gather on the beaches for recreational purposes. The government has, therefore, imposed the restriction with “immediate effect”.People violating the orders will be punished under Section 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) of the Pakistan Penal Code.
