Despite regular air courier sorties operating from Zanskar to Leh, more than 15 passengers from Kargil stranded in the subdivision from last two months are being denied any space in these sorties.  

These stranded passengers told over phone that they are facing huge trouble and are unable to visit their families despite continuously approaching the liaison officer for their travel but he is continuously ignoring their plights.

One of the stranded passenger said that yesterday two sorties were operated from Zanaskar to Leh but in both the sorties they were denied any space.

"Only those who have political approach and influence were adjusted," alleged the passenger. 

The passengers also said that two of their stranded fellows are high blood pressure patients, which has panicked them.

Meanwhile Chairman and Chief Executive Councillor Kacho Ahmed Ali Khan told media that the passengers have messaged him and he has directed SDM Zanaskar to adjust these all 15 passengers in forthcoming sortie on priority basis.
