HUNZA: Some of the victims of Attabad Lake Thursday came out with spades to dig the water spillway wider to allow quick flow of water from the landslide-created lake.
Meanwhile, DC Hunza Zafar Waqar warned of legal action if the above activity led to any kind of damage.
Water continued to flow into Attabad Lake and out through the spillway, as the affectees staged a protest against the administration at Aliabad on Karakorum Highway.
The protesters complained that the administration instead of making a wide nullah only dug a narrow drainage from which water is flowing out at a slow pace. The demonstrators from Attabad broke through the police cordon to reach the spillway where victims from different areas of Gojal district who arrived there on boat joined them.
The victims managed to reach the scene despite closure of boat service and started plowing the spillway with spades and other tools they brought along with them.
