GILGIT BALTISTAN: Six people died and 13 suffered injuries late on Tuesday night after a boundary wall collapsed in Gilgit-Baltistan.
The incident occurred when the Independence Day celebrations were underway. “Six are confirmed dead, while three others are in critical condition,” a hospital source said.
According to witnesses, people had climbed a boundary wall to watch the Independence Day celebrations when it collapsed due to the weight of the people.
