Earlier, the Rawalpindi Commissioner instructed the authorities concerned, including the police, to finalise all the arrangements to facilitate tourists in Murree.

The spokesperson said Murree is a centre of tourism and tourists from all over Pakistan come to enjoy the beauty of the ‘Queen of Hills’, particularly during the summer season. All possible facilities would be provided to the tourists coming to Murree to enjoy pleasant weather during the summer season, he said.

For the convenience of tourists, pamphlets are also kept at the facilitation centres, which contain all the contact numbers required to deal with an emergency, and there is also a map to guide the tourists.

He said representatives of all administrative institutions, including Murree administration, police, Rescue 1122, tourism department, health department, and civil defence, would remain present at the centres to provide awareness to the tourists.
