LAHORE: Panic gripped Passu Valley in Upper Hunza as Gilgit-Baltistan Governor Mir Ghazanfar Ali Khan’s son Salman Khan fired in the air for “almost 20 minutes”.

People protested against the incident in strongest terms and pressed the GB government to take action against the ‘culprit’.

Hunza is considered one of the most peaceful areas in Pakistan. The valley, home to most educated people in the country, is visited by thousands of tourists, both local and foreign, every year. Such incidents are very rare in Hunza.

Seeking anonymity, a GB Information Department official told Daily Times that no action has been taken against Salman so far. He added that several tourists were also present on the scene when the governor’s son opened fire in the air.

When contacted, a police official said the governor’s son was testing his guns. He added that the people have filed a complaint with the police, but no first information report was lodged until the filing of this report.

Salim Khan, the governor elder son, a member of legislative assembly, wrote on his Facebook page, “I would like to officially clarify that 20 mins of indiscriminate aerial firing took place in Passu, Gojal by Prince Salman Khan; youngest son of the Governor Gilgit-Baltistan Mir Ghazanfar Ali Khan. He was accompanied by police official escort along with female companions (some of foreign origin)… I have asked the administration to take full legal action against this unlawful incident. Due process of law should prevail. http://dailytimes.com.pk/pakistan/26-Jun-17/gb-governors-son-joins-hooligan-club
