Administration tells media persons not to move close to sinkhole

Anantnag: Administration Wednesday warned Journalists against moving close to a sinkhole at Wandevalgam area of Kokernag in South Kashmir’s Anantnag.
“It has been observed that despite restrictions being imposed on any assembly of general public or movement of individuals near sinkhole at Wandevalgam on 11 February 2022 by Sub Divisional Magistrate Kokernag, a number of media personnel continue to move close to and into the sinkhole, posing threat to their own life,” Tehsildar Kokernag said in an advisory issued today. “This in turn attracts general public near the sinkhole which increases the threat to life and makes crowd control difficult for the administration,” reads the advisory adding that all media personnel are advised and warned not to violate the restrictions imposed around the sinkhole.
The order reads that action under relevant sections of law shall be taken against anyone found violating the order.
Pertinently, the vertical sinkhole in the Brengi stream at Wandevalgam village has become centre of attraction for people especially media personnel. (KNT)
