Professional beggars mob picnickers at Lake View

ISLAMABAD: Rawal Lake View Park has become a hub of professional beggars, as the park management is not paying any heed to control begging at the recreational spot. 
Visitors have expressed concern over the increasing number of professional beggars inside the Lake View Park. A large number of people are visiting the city’s beautiful water reservoir daily to enjoy some free moments with their families, but due to beggars’ activities, the resort is turning into an irksome place. The visitors said that most of the beggars were female and children under the age of 15. The beggars surround every visitor and ask for Rs 5 to Rs 10, said Adeel Chughtai, a visitor. He said that that visiting the park had now become inconvenient.
