Posted: Feb 23, 2015 06:02 pm EST

(Newsdesk) In the aftermath of the Nanga Parbat murders, the Gilgit-Baltistan government has formed a highly trained police unit to provide security to climbers, local media reported yesterday. A High Altitude Unit comprising 150 Jawans has been formed and the High Altitude Police Unit will be increased in phases to ensure security of the climbers.


Climbers currently on the mountain  have no added security but the peak may be too cold for terrorists in winter anyway. The mountaineers reported they plan a summit push this week.
