MIRPUR: Four persons, including two real brothers drowned while trying to swim in a water treatment plant in the adjoining Chakswarsi town here on Monday, police said. All four of them had gone to the water tank to swim in the water treatment plant in a bid to beat the hot spell. “They were washed away by the gushing water currents in the plant, which lacks a safety valve,” District Council former Chairman Chaudhry Muhammad Anwar told this scribe. He added that all four bodies have been recovered. The deceased were identified as Muhammad Tayeb, Usman and two brothers Sharjeel Ahemd and Muhammad Suhaib.
