Skardu: Preparations have been completed for a base camp search and rescue operation to find K2-headed Pakistani mountaineer Ali Sadpara and his missing team.
According to details, the case of the disappearance of three climbers, including Muhammad Ali Sadpara, who hoisted the Pakistani flag on the world’s highest peak K2, is getting longer.
Sources said that preparations for search and rescue operation at the base camp have been completed and the search operation will resume as soon as the weather improves.

The rescue team got information from Sajid Sadpara who was returning to the base camp after which Sajid Sadpara was consulted to make the search and rescue operation a success.
Sources said that Sajid Sadpara had returned from Bottle Neck after an oxygen cut malfunction on K2. Sajid Sadpara informed the search and rescue team about the details.
