Sajid Sadpara and two other mountaineers climbed as high as 7,800 metres on K2 in search of the three missing mountaineers from the last winter expedition, Alpine Club of Pakistan said on Friday. One of the missing climbers was Sajid Sadpara’s father Mohammad Ali Sadpara. It is relevant to note that the K2 bottleneck is also known as the death zone.
The announcement was made by Gilgit Baltistan Information and Planning Minister Fatehullah Khan, who was briefing the media after the cabinet meeting, along with Muhammad Ali Sadpara son Sajid Ali Sadpara, GB Finance Minister Javed Ali Manwa, GB Food Advisor Shams Lone and others.
“My family and the entire Pakistani nation and our mountaineer friends are going through constant trauma and distress. The love shown by the Pakistani nation has been a source of great encouragement and courage for my family,” Sajid Sadpara said. “My family has lost a very kind father,” his son said in a sober voice.
Sajid said his father was a patriotic person who loved the green crescent flag to the point of madness. He vowed to continue Muhammad Ali Sadpara mission to fulfil his father’s unfulfilled dreams. He thanked the Virtual and Physical Base Camp at K2 set up to review the rescue operation.
On February 5, Muhammad Ali Sadpara and climbers from Iceland and Chile went missing while climbing the world second tallest mountain K2. Later, Pakistan Army helicopters and international mountaineers searched for Muhammad Ali Sadpara and co-climber from Chile but the operation was stopped due to harsh weather when all hopes were diminished.
