accident in Hunza on KKH

Zuhaib Ahmed, a 19-year old youngster from Hunza has scummed to injuries after his bike met an accident with a coaster. The accident took place on Karakoram Highway – KKH near Ganish in central Hunza district. Two others were reportedly injured in the accident.

Initially, two seriously injured and one minor injured were taken to nearby hospital. Zuhaib Ahmed, the seriously injured, could not survive the injuries and passed away early Wednesday morning. Another critically injured, who is the uncle of Zohaib, has been shifted to Rawalpindi.

Zuhaib was a student of Punjab Group of Colleges and was in Hunza for wedding of an elder sibling.

According to details, Zuhaib Ahmed was the son of Mr. Bashir, one of the brothers who own and operate the famous Eagle’s Nest in Duikar, Altit, Hunza.

This is not the first time such an accident has occurred on KKH. Despite dozens of causalities, the local government and law enforcement agencies have failed to come up with a proper plan. Hunza does not have traffic signals neither there is traffic police placed on major intersections. The use of helmets for bike riders could not be enforced and there is yet no way a speed limit could be enforced.

People can be seen gathered around spot of accident.

GBee News extends its deepest condolences and sympathies with the family and friends of the departed soul. May his soul find peace. Amen.

Zulfiqar Essa

“My name is Zulfiqar Essa and I’m from Hyderabad, Hunza. I’m the co-founder of TechScape and previously have been awarded the Global UGRAD scholarship. Currently, I’m working on an idea called “Shirijon” which aims to create over 10,000 jobs in the next decade. I’m collaborating on this idea with my team members from Chitral, Punjab, and Germany.

Recently our idea got selected in the top 35 for HULT Prize 2019 from around two hundred thousand global applications received from across 120 countries. In the next round to be held in Amman, Jordan, we will be competing against young entrepreneurs from Harvard Business School, Cambridge, and other globally known institutions. Our idea is the very first Gilgit-Baltistan and Chitral (GBC) to make it to the regional round of HULT Prize.

Team Shirijon from COMSATS Islamabad - Hult Prize 2019

Our team from COMSATS University Islamabad is quite excited to participate in the 10th Annual Hult Prize Regional Summit in an attempt to win a $1 million USD as a seed fund. We think that this idea has the potential to change the economy of not only Gilgit-Baltistan and Chitral but entire Pakistan as well.”
