A four-member family on Monday met an unfortunate incident at a nullah in Karachi’s Shadman Town after their motorbike slipped into the overflowing drain during the Sunday night rain spell as two of them were later saved by rescue teams.
Rescue officials said that four members of a family including the husband, wife and children were moving on a motorbike in Shadman Town when they lost track of the road during the heavy rain spell and slipped into the overflowing nullah.
The body of the woman has been recovered after an hour-long rescue effort while one man and a girl were rescued due to timely efforts, the police said, adding that the body of a child is yet to be recovered.
Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) Karachi chief Hafiz Naeem ur Rehman, who reached the incident site, blamed the local authorities for the unfortunate incident saying that their negligence has claimed more precious lives in the metropolitan.
“The city has been abandoned and the administration was nowhere to be seen after the incident,” he said.
