CHITRAL: Six members of an Ismaili family were among the 20 Chitrali victims of the 7th December PIA ATR plane crash in Havelian. Their dead bodies were brought to Chitral today on a C-130 plane operated by the Pakistan Air Force.

The six family members – husband Mirza Gul, wife Gul Horan, daughter Zahida Parveen, daughter Sameena Bibi, son Hassan Ali and son Farhan Ali – were shifted from the Chitral airport to their native village, Ezit, located in the remote Garam Chashma Valley. Six graves were prepared in one line for the family. They were laid to rest after a collective funeral prayer, attended by large numbers of locals.

Only one member of the family, 14 year old daughter, Haseena Gul, survived, because she was not on the plane. Haseena Gul is in severe trauma, according to local reporters.
