14 killed: Gilgit-Baltistan rocked by sectarian violence

The Army has taken control of the violence-hit Gilgit area following fierce fighting between two sectarian groups. Earlier, a curfew was imposed on the area after the killing of almost 14 people and injuries to 48 others. But the fighting continued despite imposition of curfew.

The army took control as police, Rangers and Gilgit-Baltistan Scouts appeared helpless to rein in the fighting groups. According to police, several people were injured as two groups locked horns. They said that a hand-grenade attack left four people wounded at Ittehad Chowk.

Local administration has issued orders for the closure of all the government, non-government offices and educational institutions for an indefinite period. Police, Rangers and Gilgit-Baltistan Scouts were deployed in the area to overcome the situation but to no avail. The situation forced the authorities to impose curfew on the area for an indefinite period. Sources in the area said that an exchange of fire continued despite the curfew.
