ISLAMABAD, Dec. 4 (Xinhua) -- Muhammad Yaar, once a handsome young man and had good earnings, never imagined that one day he will have to spend his life begging in the streets.
The 40-year-old Yaar, sitting on the sidewalk of Pakistan's garrison city of Rawalpindi, could not even spread his hands to beg since he had lost one arm and the other one disabled after a high voltage electricity wire fell on him in 2004.
