Shandur road reopened after a month

CHITRAL: The Mastuj-Shandur road was reopened by the communication and works department on Wednesday more than a month after it was closed due to avalanches at different spots.

Three village councils in the Laspur valley remained blocked since the last week of January.

Village nazims Sher Azam, Mubar Shah and Punar Khan said people in the area remained trapped during this period.

They demanded the government provide heavy machinery to keep the road open during rain and snowfall.–Zahiruddin
