The team from Rescue 1122 reached the spot responding to a phone call made by a citizen who reported the appearance of a dead body in the river bed.
Gilgit, May 2: According to information shared by Rescue 1122, the dead body of a young man who had gone missing three days back has been recovered from the Gilgit river, near Minawar.
The missing youth was identified as Irfan, who had disappeared in the Gilgit river three days back while swimming. Rescue 1122 officials and relatives had been searching for Irfan for the last three days.
The dead body of the deceased youth was shifted to the City Hospial.
A ban imposed by the district administration on swimming in the river is routinely being defied by young people who jump into the raging river to beat the heat and many of them lose their lives every year.
