Schools closed in Hunza – Nagar district

PT Report

Hunza, May 12: According to information shared by the deputy commissioner of Hunza – Nagar, Zafar Waqat Taj, the schools and colleges in the district would remain for indefinite period, in the wake of a looming flood disaster.

It is pertinent to note that Hunza – Nagar has a relatively high school enrollment ratio and it is one of the most literate districts of Pakistan. The closure of schools and colleges would cause a lot of inconvenience for thousands of students.

Many of the schools would be used to house IDPs in case of mass displacements due to potential flooding of the Hunza River after over-topping or outburst of the disaster born lake at Attabad that has caused three upstream villages to submerge completely or partially.
