K2 summit: no contact with Ali Sadpara and team
Gilgit (TP) February 6, 2021: Muhammad Ali Sadpara, who had embarked on a journey with his foreign expedition group to summit K2 without the support of proper oxygen kit, has made no contact with the management at base camp as Pakistani TV channels claimed that the trio scalled up the second highest mountain late on Friday night.
According to Sajid Sadpara, the son of Muhammad Ali Sadpara, who had also accompanied his father with Iceland’s mountaineer John Snorri and Chile’s J P Mohr, but had to return almost from the top of K2 after his health deteriorated, tweeted that no contact could be made with Ali Sadpara and his team members. He criticised the national media for running misleading and fake news about the summit.
Sajid Ali Sadpara lamented about the hurry shown by the national media in spreading misleading information, calling it shameful for journalism.
All TV channels, through unreliable sources, run the story claiming that the team led by Muhammad Ali Sadpara scalled up the second highest mountain, however, it was rebutted by none other than the team management that had sponsored the summit expedition.
Muhammad Ali Sadpara had already made history by scaling up the Killer Mountain in Karakorum ranges some years back and this is his second attempt to summit the second highest mountain without oxygen support but with a source support of the gas.
