Jamshed Dasti arrested on water theft charges

Muzzafargarh June 09 (TNS): Member National Assembly Jamshed Dasti was arrested by police on Thursday’s night on charges of water theft from a channel.

The irrigation authorities had registered a case against Dasti, accusing him of tampering with the watercourse to increase water flows to his lands.

Jamshed Dasti was coming back to Muzzafargarh from Islamabad when he was taken into custody by the police.

Irrigation authorities say influential and big farmers use more water than their due share and deprive other growers especially those at the tail-end from their just share.
