SIALKOT-A protest demonstration was held as a two-year-old girl died after falling into an uncapped manhole in Sambrial city's Meraajpura locality here on Saturday.

Local labourer Irfan Ali's minor daughter Mehmal fell into the uncapped manhole and died. Rescue 1122 officials pushed out her body from there. Later, the grieved parents of the deceased girl and local residents staged a protest demonstration against the Sambrial Tehsil Municipal Administration by putting the body on the local road.

They were carrying banners and placards. They also chanted slogans against the Sambrial TMA. They urged Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif to look into the matter and ensure stern action against the TMA officials for their failure in capping the manholes in Sambrial city.

However, she was later laid to rest in a graveyard as a large number of people attended the funeral.
