ISLAMABAD (Online) - A large number of people on Thursday gathered at the site of Margalla Towers to remember their family members and friends, who had lost their lives during the devastating earthquake of 08 October 2005. The residents of Margalla Towers, school children and people from different walks of life laid floral wreaths at the site and prayed for the souls of those who lost their lives in this tragedy. Emotional scenes were also witnessed and a one-minute silence was observed on the occasion. No government representative was seen at the sight. A portion of Margalla towers had collapsed during the deadly earthquake due to which more than 72 people, including foreigners, had died while hundreds were trapped in the rubbles. More than 143 families were directly affected by this incident who were compensated Rs 1.75 billion by the government after the decision of Supreme Court. Meanwhile, the affected owners of apartments still have concern over the release of Ramzan Khokhar, owner of the CCC Construction Company that had constructed Margalla Towers along with other engineers and consultants. They demanded from the government to extradite Ramzan Khokhar, who fled to the UK after the collapse of the towers. If government thinks that money can replace our sorrow and reduce the anger we have for Ramzan Khokhar, then, they are wrong said Altaf Ahmad an affectee of Margalla Towers.
