    thnx for condolence and let me correct that Justice Khurshid Khan is a former chairman of defunct Northern Areas Chief Court Gilgit and not Chief Court Gilgit-Baltistan as the latter is functional.
    sympathies and condolence with the bereaved families and with Judge Khurshid Khan his wife, Ayesha, Hanifullah Khan DSP, Barister Khalid Khan and Atif Ahmed Khan (in USA).

      GB Chief Court is the continuation of Northern Areas Chief Court so the idea that it’s desfunctional is not correct. Its name was changed because of the change in the status of the region and its role has slightly changed because of the creation of Appellate court .

    ASA , i was in the same class in. Fatima Jinnah college with Andaleeb. I was browsing through Khaula Fatima’s facebook page and saw that she is no more with us. I was shocked! Although i was not very close to her but we knew each other and were class fellows. I started searching the net and then found the disturbing news. I live in USA and hadnt been in touch since we graduated but i remember her bubbly lively personality. My heartfelt condolances to all her family members.
