  1. So very sad. Precious lives lost due to either overspending or fault in the vehicle. May the departed souls rest in peace and the injured get well soon. Although travel from Islamabad to Chitral has become safer due to standardised service provision by two private operators but Peshawar to Chitral remains as risky as it used to be 20 years ago. There is no hope that it’s going to change anytime sooner. That is the price we pay for being part of KPK where first things don’t change, even if they did, it takes ages because our fellow frontiersmen are resistant to change. Here standardised services are “alien thoughts” and not good for business. People from far flung areas like us have no other choice but to avail whatever services are provided. There are little or no vehicle inspection system introduced by the Govt. could there be a possibility of the same private operators run coaster service from Peshawar? Lowari tunnel and Swat motorway have made the long travel short and comfortable but we still lose precious lives? Who is responsible here? Awa am, the govt, or the driver and his vehicle? I can’t find the answer. Can you?

  2.
