Child among people stuck in Bati in Naushki area dies

QUETTA: A child, among the people stranded in Bati, died on Saturday afternoon.

Earlier, a wedding procession on the way to Naushki from a wedding in Chaghi comprising 60 people including bride and bridegroom went missing on Friday night. However, on Saturday the rescuers found the people stuck in Bati area due to heavy rain and dilapidated condition of the road.

The teams of Frontier Corps, local administration and levies reached the site on foot since the condition of roads in the area does not allow vehicles to reach easily.

According to rescuers,  the wedding procession was facing difficulty in moving forward as the road in Bati is in a dilapidated state due puddle, formed by rain, on the rocky roads. The people were on-board in six vehicles.

The Provincial Disaster Management Authority officials said that they were trying to take the stranded people to safe area before evening. They said that rescue operation through helicopter was not possible due to bad weather.
