Karachi beach turns into a medical waste dumping ground

Karachi: Tuesday’s wife of Cricket legend Wasim Akram turned to Twitter to draw the media’s attention to the terrible situation of Clifton beach in Karachi.

She published several beach pictures and videos littered with medical waste, syringes and blood vials, calling on officials to close the beach to the public until it is secure.

“I have walked on Clifton beach everyday for the last 4 years and I have never been scared until today. This beach needs to be shut down now.

Medical waste, syringes, viles of blood that has come in from the ocean has spread across Clifton beach for kilometres. The beach is biohazardous and in a state of emergency,” she said.

Shaniera Akram asked Karachiites not to visit and clean the beach as it needs to be cleaned up by professionals.
