13 people lost their lives Due to slippery road
Thirteen people lost their lives when the vehicle carrying prisoners skidded on the slippery road and fell into a gorge near Asmani Mor (Lowari Top) here this morning. According to the officials at the medical facility in Upper Dir District Headquarters Hospital, a number of injured admitted there were in ECU. It is pertinent to mention here that in the northern areas of Pakistan, innumerable people are killed every year in such mishaps. No safety measures are taken to stop such accidents that inevitably happen when roads become too slippery to travel due to rain and snow. The avalanche during winter too takes its toll that goes unnoticed and mostly undocumented.
