Local hero Suleman Khan rescues more than 100 people stuck in Quetta snow



Suleman Khan, a young man from the Kachlak area in Quetta, was hailed as a hero earlier this week after he, in an herculean effort, saved the lives of more than a 100 people stuck on snow-jammed roads in the area. Three days ago, the Quetta-Zhob highway was shut down due to severe snowfall in the Kachlak, Ziarat Cross, Khanozai, and Kan Mehtarzai areas of the Balochistan province.
The situation led to hundreds of cars being stranded on the road, with women, children and elderly passengers left vulnerable in the harsh weather without adequate food supplies or clothing. Bracing the blood-curdling cold, Khan not only rescued several passengers by driving them to safety in his own car, but in a gesture of kindness that has touched the hearts of many across the nation, also opened his home to them for food and shelter.—INP
