PESHAWAR: Overnight rain that lashed the provincial capital damaged electronic equipment and furniture at the Peshawar Press Club estimated to be worth Rs 2.5 million.
JournalismPakistan.com correspondent in Peshawar says rainwater entered the computer lab at the club rendering 25 computers, three refrigerators, two deep freezers and projectors almost useless. Also damaged were a number of chairs.
The rainwater could not be pumped out from the premises quickly enough and journalists faced difficulties in carrying out their work.
Workers were trying to retrieve the equipment from the knee-deep water that accumulated in the basement.
Saiful Islam Saifi, the club president said the machines provided by the district administration to pump out the water went out of order which created more problems.
