Threatened by continuous rock fall and landslides, 25 households of the Rahimabad village of Gilgit District have taken shelter in an under-construction mill. Their households have been declared ‘at risk’ by Focus Humanitarian Assistance (FOCUS) Pakistan. A large number of children, elderly women and men and other people are living like IDPs in their own village. So far, the government and the district administration has not devised a strategy to handle the situation.
The locals maintain that if there’s any loss of life, then the government will be held responsible.
