Hunza, September 10: A bullet was found in the office of the Chief Executive of Northern Areas on Monday morning, when he returned to office after holidays. The bullet has penetrated roof of the office and was found near chair of the Mir Ghazanfar Ali Khan, the chief executive.
The police, after initial investigation, have blamed the aerial firing that took place in Gilgit, near office of the CE, after jubiliant Jiyalas of PPP came out to celebrate Zardari’s presidential election. The CE, however, has said that he was the target of the bullet. The police are further investigating this issue.
Public circles have shown concern about the incident and demanded ensuring security for the man holding highest elected position in Gilgit – Baltistan. Earlier various news channels had telecast misleading news, spreading the impression that the CE had a lucky escape.
