Suleman Khan, a young man from Quetta’s Kachlak area, who helped more than 100 people stuck in snow-jammed roads has received an award from the Chief Minister of Balochistan Jam Kamal Khan for his selfless act of bravery.
According to details, Suleman took out his Land Cruiser to help passengers stuck on Quetta-Zhob highway after the recent spell of heavy snowfall in the province. The 30-year-old hero took them to his home and offered them food and shelter. Not only this, he also pulled many cars out of the snow and helped people get fuel and even paid for it from his pocket.
Prime Minister Imran Khan also took to twitter to appreciate him.
“I did everything for the will of God. I saw that people were stuck because of the storm and had I not helped them, they probably wouldn’t have returned alive. I was trying to help them since 2 pm,” Khan said adding that rescue officials arrived around 12 am.
Earlier this week, the Quetta-Zhob Highway was shut down due to heavy snowfall. The situation led to several cars being stranded on the road, with women, children and elderly passengers left helpless in the harsh weather without enough food supplies or clothing.
