RIP – Ehsanul Haq Jan

We are deeply saddened over the passing of Ehsanul Haq Jan of Booni, Upper Chitral, in United States of America (USA). He was 52.

Ehsanul Haq Jan was associated with the UNICEF and had been living in the USA along with his family for the last many years. Earlier, he worked with the AKDN in Chitral and Gilgit-Baltistan before joining the UN body.

He leaves behind his parents, wife, five brothers, two sisters and two children – a daughter and a son.

When contacted by ChitralToday, Shamsul Haq Qamar, brother of the late Chitrali development expert, said on phone from the USA that they were returning to  New Jersey from Virginia in their car, driven by Mr Ehsan’s wife, when it met with the accident on a highway in Maryland area. Jan passed away on the spot.

His wife was flown in a police helicopter to a trauma centre at Baltimore with injuries.  Mr Qamar and his wife who were visiting Ehsan were treated for minor injuries in a nearby health centre.

Mr Qamar said a decision about bringing the dead body to Pakistan would be taken later after fulfilling legal formalities.

Meanwhile, Shamiar Khan Lal, the father of the deceased, in a statement in Booni asked relatives, friends and well-wishers living in different parts of Chitral to pray for the departed soul in their areas instead of visiting Booni.
