The family tree of the Yabgo dynasty prepared by the current 'king' Yabgo Mohammed Kacho with help from Indian Army.
The descendants of the Yabgo dynasty still live in Turtuk and the family is considered as rulers by the villagers. The 'king' Yabgo Mohammed Kacho, a rather down to earth and soft spoken gentleman, receives all those that visit his former summer home that now serves as a museum with great warmth. Some of his family members remain on the other side of LOC, as do many family members of other villagers. Along with this pain, the villagers harbour a regret that the Indian army did not take over the entire Baltistan that fateful night during the war.
Turtuk reeled under two long decades of mistrust arising from a sense of mixed emotions of losing close family members to Pakistan, and add to it the apathy and neglect shown by the Indian government towards these border villages. Finally in 1999, Lt Gen Arjun Ray, who was then the Commander of 14 Corps, started ‘Operation Sadbhavna,’ which aimed at reviving a positive civil-military relationship. Under this operation, the army undertook many projects that ranged from building schools, developing infrastructure, to establishing computer and other vocational training centres, poultry farms, programs aimed at women empowerment, providing telephone connections, free medical services, and a daily bus service. Today, for the people of Turtuk it is "upar Allah, niche Indian Army." Turtuk stands as a shining example of how things can work out amicably, when both sides are willing and able to appreciate each others efforts.
