In Muzaffarabad specifically in area of Kamsar Nullah where the municipal workers were on work, digging through, they found 18 dead bodies. These being linked to the devastating earthquake that hit the northern areas of Pakistan back on 8 October, 2005.
This earthquake from oct 2005 was so much devastating that about more than 46000 people were killed only in areas of Azad and Jammu Kashmir. Millions countrywide were left homeless and food-less. Millions of families were effected in this earthquake.
This earthquake had changed the landscape of many northern areas, homes and many building were fully vanished and even the streams, pools, hills and paths everything had reconfigured itself. So people visited earlier were most likely to not recognize certain areas where they have been earlier.
These 18 dead bodies believed to be a victim of landslide during the earthquake. Never recovered earlier because of the magnitude of destruction caused by the earthquake of oct 2005.
