KARACHI - Six out the seven victims of a road mishap that took place late on Saturday evening near Chamra Chowrangi, were laid to rest in Korangi on Sunday.

As many as seven people, including a couple and two children, were killed and over half a dozen wounded when a speeding bus they were travelling by rammed into a concrete structure. All on board were returning from a wedding ceremony in Liaquatabad area, according to sources.

The dead and the injured were ferried to the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre (JPMC), where doctors confirmed that seven of them were no more.

The driver underestimated the bus’s height or did not realise the concrete pass ahead, the sources said while adding that vehicles having height over eight-feet could not pass through the structure that was not highlighted using reflectors or any such stuff. Six of the seven deceased were buried at a graveyard in Korangi. They included 65-year-old Aslam, his wife Shamim, 55, and daughter Shazia, 36, two nieces 6-year-old Minahil and Fatima, 4, sister-in-law Naseem, 42 and a neighbouring boy Muzammil, 9.
