  1. For God sake these people have not been killed by someone.Please correct it (8 people died & eleven injured in a road accident etc…..

    1. Dear Shahid sb,

      It is common for newspapers of national and international repute to write “killed” for the people who die in accidents. They are killed by the accidents, not individuals or groups. It is obvious in text of the report.

      Thanks for the feedback

  2. Very Sad news Rest in peace. I hope injured get well soon. Whenever i hear such a bad accident news in this heaven on earth my heart fills with sorrow. I wish some day Pakistan is strong enough to build good infrastructure for the brave people living there.

  3. May their souls rest in eternal peace and may almighty bless their families courage to bear this irreparable loss Aameen 🙁
