The announcement was made on Saturday, coinciding with a visit from a Chinese investigation team tasked with inspecting the site and gathering crucial information related to the incident.

The incident, which occurred earlier this week, prompted an immediate response from both Chinese and Pakistani authorities. The tragic bus accident in Upper Kohistan district led to the loss of nine precious lives, and the subsequent investigation aims to determine the circumstances and causes surrounding the unfortunate event.
