STAFF REPORT LHR: The Lahore High Court has directed the Water and Sanitation Authority to collect water samples from different parts of the city and submit a report after getting it tested from Pakistan Council of Scientific and Industrial Research laboratory.

The court was hearing a case against non-provision of clean drinking water in different areas of Lahore. The petitioners counsel contended in the court that it was the responsibility of WASA to provide clean drinking water to citizens without discrimination but the most of city people are deprived of this facility.

He argued that people were suffering from stomach-related diseases after drinking contaminated water. He requested the court to pass an order for the WASA and other authorities to provide clean drinking water to all areas of the city and install water filtration plant in all union councils of the provincial metropolis.

Official of the WASA had already told the court that water filtration plants were being installed to ensure availability of clean drinking water to all citizens. The court will resume hearing on November 19.
