Upper Chitral cut off as road washed away by river

BOONI: Upper Chitral cut off. Lower and Upper Chitral disconnected from each other after the only road crumbled to river erosion in the south of Reshun on Friday night. 

Hundreds of vehicles going towards the down country were stranded at Reshun on Saturday morning. 

The erosion of the road has also cut off link between Lower Chitral and Gilgit-Baltistan via Shandur.

But despite repeated appeals and concerns shown by the locals, the government failed to take steps to save the vital road.
