“The spot lack basic facilities such as dustbins. I have seen many locals, they are dumping plastic bottles, polythenes and food wastes around the premises of spot,” Peer Saqib, a local resident, said.

“There should be dustbins and warning boards should be installed for visitors asking them not to spill any wastes,” he said.
