PESHAWAR - Despite the lapse of 11 days of Budhni bus incident, two dead bodies of children are still missing inside the canal, while the rescue agencies have wound up their relief operation on the fourth day of the incident.

Each day the parents of the missing children visit the site to find any clue about their children but they return home desperately for not finding any sign of their loved ones.

On the other hand the rescue workers have stopped working to search the two missing children, which further annoyed the parents and relatives of the missing children.

Asif Khan, the father of seven-year-old Namra, said that if the government and rescue authorities were serious about their recovery process, then they could easily shift the flow of Budhni canal water to other side for surfacing the dead bodies. 

“We knew that our children are present in this canal but we have no experts to recover them from this deep canal,” Asif Khan told this scribe.

It is to be mentioned here that on February 22 a tragic incident had occurred when a bus carrying a wedding party plunged into Budhni canal on Charsadda road Peshawar.

The incident resulted killing of 30 persons and injuring of dozen other including children and women. Most of the dead bodies were swept by the overflowing Budhni canal for which expert divers of Pak army were called to recover the bodies.

The relief operation continued for six days while the rescue workers disappeared from the scene on fifth day of the operation. Mostly the local volunteers contributed in the relief process and they on self-help basis formed their own stretcher to shift the victims from water to hospital.The parents of the missing children have demanded of the government to block Budhni canal temporarily for recovering the dead bodies of their children.
