Based on an erroneous information obtained through the official website of Associated Press of Pakistan (the country’s official news agency which claims to be “Pakistan’s Premier News Source”), Pamir Times had reported that the governments of China and Pakistan have agreed to lower barrier of the dammed Hunza River by 30 feet.
However, the APP later published another report which negates the statistics shared earlier on its website.
According to the new data
- Height of the lake barrier will be reduced by 30 meter (98.42 feet), not 30 feet, as earlier reported
- Project will be completed in 2 years, not 6 years, as earlier reported.
