Chitral University student drowns after his jeep falls in the Chitral River

March 24 , 2019

He was performing stunts near the river and lost control of the vehicle





A student of Chitral University died on Sunday after his jeep fell in the Chitral River. 

Salman Ahmed was performing stunts such as drifting with his jeep near the driver when he lost control and the vehicle fell in. He was swept away by the strong currents and drowned.

The police say that bystanders took videos of him drowning instead of trying to help. Videos show him crying out for help as people just watch on. The police have arrested one man in connection with this.

Rescue officials are still searching for his body and have called in divers to assist with the operation.

    It is unfair to arrest some one for doing nothing. By this way the crimes will increase. This is not the fault of him because he did not till the university student for grifting and teckless driving.
