At present, the sea is making its way into the residential area in Pasni, part of Gwadar, southwestern port of Balochistan.
According to the locals, since the establishment of the fish harbor in Pasni, the sea is making inroads into the populated area of the town.
The sea changed its direction towards the Bangla Bazaar, a residential area in Pasni, where a safety wall had been erected to protect the population.
But the sea destroyed the wall and encroached upon the land sweeping away many houses and walls.
Wahid Baksh, a resident of Bangla Bazaar, is hit hard by the sea as his house was completely eaten up by the sea. He told PakVoices saying, ” My house came under the water forcing me to move to safer place.”
“I have not been even compensated by the government.”
The new safety wall was being erected but the work was halted in 2015.
Akbar Faqeer is working with PakVoices as a citizen journalist from Pasni.
