Hunza River: Passengers of stuck boat help themselves out of danger

Special Reporter

Gilgit, February 4: Passengers stuck in middle of the partially frozen Hunza River have helped themselves out of danger.

Aziz Karim, one of the 40 passengers stuck in the dammed Hunza River, informed Pamir Times moments ago that the passengers have successfully taken the boat out of the frozen and dangerous portion of the river and they will soon reach Ayeenabad.

A boat carrying 40, forty, passengers was stuck in the partially frozen dammed Hunza River, near Ayeenabad, for more than two hours.

According to details shared by a passenger, Aziz Karim, who is currently on the boat, there were 10 women and 4 children among the stuck passengers.

Aziz Karim had earlier told Pamir Times on phone that the passengers were trying to break the ice and carry the boat forward but the process was painfully slow and really difficult.

He had also appealed to the authorities and local volunteers on behalf of the stuck passengers to help and rescue the boat.

  1. What is the impact of the recent discharge of dam water without blast. As per the local media of Gilgit, the Force Commander and Chief Secretary are visiting Hunza-Nagar District and most probably will visit Gojal. There must be a serious discussion with the Force Commander Gb regarding the toptal failiure of FWO in deepening the spillway as being a commercial entity of Pak Army.FWO has a longterm plan to reinstate its existance in GB and to prolong the attabad project to get the contract of repaire work of KKH Khunjerab-Raikot section after completion of the KKH improvement project. FWO is also planning to get the Skardu road expansion project as it has already submitted a low tender to get the project to keep CRBC or other parties out.This corrupt mafia has nothing with the sufferings of our local people as the people of GB has witnessed thier corruption on KKH from Khunjerab to Thakot for a long long time.
