Pakistan indifferent to the plight of Attabad lake disaster victims
People in Gilgit-Baltistan continue to remain victims of police brutality and discrimination by the Pakistan government. Recently Gilgit Baltistan police, Rangers and Northern Squad jointly cracked down on the victims of Attabad Lake disaster in Hunza Valley of Gilgit Baltistan. A massive landslide in Hunza Valley on 4th January 2010 had left two dozen villagers dead and displaced over 250 families. The government, however, failed to provide aid for their rehabilitation.
