Sherqila, December 31: Volunteers of the Al-Ansar Trust have continued the search for the missing bodies of two of the nine victims of a tragic accident that had occurred last week. Bodies of seven of the victims had been taken out of the Ghizer River by local volunteers and government officials working together.

A car carrying 10 people had fallen in the Ghizer River near Sherqila village in the Punial Tehsil, leading to the death of 9 people, belonging to the same larger family. One of the passengers had swam to safety while all the rest, including women and children, had drowned with the car. A massive search operation had been launched after the accident in which the volunteers of Al-Ansar Trust played a very important role.
