Police Protect Shimla Water As Crisis Looms, Protests Continue


Following an acute drinking water shortage in Shimla, the Municipal Corporation is distributing water under police protection, with over 70 police personnel specifically deployed to deal with the situation in the water-deprived hill-station. The tourism industry in Himachal Pradesh's Shimla has also been massively hit as tourists are cancelling their visits. The local hoteliers and others related to the tourism industry are worried as social media is flooded with news about the water crisis, preventing the inflow of tourists into the state.
