Gilgit, May 20: Supply of clean drinking water to Hussaini and Shishkat villages has been severed by the surging lake water in Gojal Valley. The people are forced to use unhygienic water.

The water supply lines were destroyed in Shishkat as after coming under the lake water.

A water supply tank in Hussaini has been destroyed by the lake water, severing supply of clean drinking water to the village.

The local people have demanded immediate action for ensuring supply of clean drinking water to the people of these two villages.

In the meanwhile extended length of the lake has increased to slightly over 18 kilometer. The lake water is likely to reach outskirts of Passu village within a couple of days.
