Newlyweds from Islamabad die in a Hotel in Hunza

Newlyweds from Islamabad have been found dead in a hotel in Hunza on Friday night. The deaths were caused due to a gas heater leakage in their hotel room in the locality of Karimabad in the Central Hunza district of Gilgit-Baltistan.

According to local police, the two recognized as Syed Shoaib Hassan and his wife Syeda Fatimee, were staying in Hunza for their honeymoon. The couple had tied a knot just ten days back in Islamabad.

Talking to GBee News, the owner of the hotel said that as per hotel policy, the guests were asked to return the gas heater within two hours, however, despite asking twice, the guests insisted on keeping the heater in the room.

The owner of the hotel and two employees including the receptionist and a waiter were arrested and taken to the Aliabad Police Station.

The bodies of the dead will be sent to Islamabad after a postmortem at a hospital in Alibabad.

Just a few weeks back, a father and newlywed son had passed away in Gojal village of the Upper Hunza district due to suffocation from power generator fumes.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi, the Foreign Minister of Pakistan, has show his grief on the death of the two. He posted his condolence message on social networking website Twitter. He said that the Foreign Office [of Pakistan] has lost a promising officer.

Electricity is on a record shortage in the Hunza district of Gilgit-Baltistan. The harsh cold weather and prolonged loadshedding are forcing locals and tourists to use Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) heaters.

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.

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.”
