ISLAMABAD: For Senator Sughra Imam, a walk in the city after sunset has become increasingly terrifying because of the ubiquitous wild boars.
“Over the years, the population of this wild beast has multiplied, but complaints in this regard could not move the Capital Development Authority (CDA),” she said while talking to Dawn.
“In a recent meeting of the Senate Standing Committee on Cabinet, I also lodged a complaint with the CDA chairman,” the senator added.
Like a seasoned bureaucrat, the CDA chairman, Nadeem Hassan Asif, readily promised to initiate a drive in this regard, she added.
Even ordinary citizens who like to stroll at night after dinner say they come across the animal more often compared to previous years.
“My whole family has been walking up and down this street outside our house for almost twenty years, but this summer, we saw far more pigs than before,” said Tahir Hussain, a resident of F-6.
Similar views were expressed by other residents of the city as well.
Residents of the federal capital claim they see the wild animal almost everywhere at night because the population of this animal has grown significantly during the last few years after their culling and hunting was banned.
