The Frontier Works Organisation has initiated rescue works after a landslide hit Gilgit-Skardu Road on Thursday, resulting in approximately 100 meters of the area coming under heavy slide blocking.
The FWO, responding to the landslide, immediately moved its troops and engineers with equipment to the area.
According to reports, all people stranded there were evacuated to a safe area, while hot meals were served to all the affected families.
Temporary field medical camps have been established and pedestrian crossing has been set up to facilitate the move.
The Frontier Works Organisation is assisting the civil administration to remove the debris from the landslide, which will take considerable time.
