A day earlier, a citizen shared a video with Daily Pakistan, complaining that snow was not being removed from roads near Nathia Gali area.
He said wet snow caused chaotic driving conditions, adding that several vehicles including two school tour buses remained stuck for a brief period in the area due to not removal of snow timely.
