Gilgit River is getting polluted – Special report on International Day of Action for Rivers

International Day of Action for Rivers is being celebrated today across the world. Pakistan’s largest river, River Indus, originates and is fed by several tributary waterways and rivers from different valleys of the Giglit-Baltistan.

The Gilgit River, called Hanisara in the local language, is being polluted due to ill planning and lax attitude of the public, and the authorities.
