"We were getting constant calls from these customers. The parcels were of medical equipment, baby food and study material. There was no way we could reach there on our 2 wheelers so I thought of taking my horse out. I spoke to my supervisor who allowed me to do this after taking all the safety measures into consideration," says Shiraz Ali Khan, a resident of old city Srinagar told.
